  • Community Innovation Grants
    Wisconsin will award community innovation grants that align with the state’s Strategic Plan. By focusing on community and local collective impact, WI aims to be responsive to unique local needs, leverage financial resources, increase local collaboration, and build ongoing sustainability at the regional level. Applicants will fund Early Care and Education (ECE) programs and evidence-based practices that are specific to their identified regional needs, and that address the issues of equity, access, affordability, quality, workforce, kindergarten readiness and local collaboration. Multiple awards in the amounts of $50,000, $100,000, or $150,000 will be given to qualified applicants in each region of the state.
