Partner Up! Grant Program Awardees - Cohort 1

Partner Up! Cohort 1 Awardees Map

The Partner Up! grant program, administered by our partner, Supporting Families Together Association (SFTA), focuses on supporting partnerships between businesses and child care providers by offering funding to businesses that purchase slots for employees’ children at existing regulated child care providers. Over 100 businesses statewide, ranging from child care and health care to retail and manufacturing, will receive funding based on the true cost of care, number of slots, and age group. An additional cohort of Partner Up! recipients will be announced later this summer. Explore the map and table of Partner Up! grant recipients below.
