map with leaves on it to represent the dream up cohort 3 communities

The Dream Up! Child Care Supply-Building grant program, administered by our partner, First Children’s Finance, focuses on building child care supply through a collaborative community approach. With this third cohort, nine additional cross-sector teams will receive strategic planning support and $75,000 in grant funding to evaluate, plan, sustain, and expand existing child care, and support new child care programs. Additional $5,000 stipends will be allocated to participating child care providers who submit business improvement plans during the strategic planning process. Explore the map and table below to view recipients from the third cohort of Dream Up! awardees.

DCF has also worked with a few communities to capture videos of the Dream Up! process. Catch up on the progress communities have been making by viewing these videos on our Innovative Communities Around Wisconsin webpage
