We recognize that high quality early care is expensive; the Sustaining Facility Quality activity offers unrestricted grants to 4 and 5 star-rated Centers and Family Child Care Homes or those with NAEYC or other national accreditation to help providers maintain high quality early care and education. Participating facilities may receive a one-time bonus payment if the Director successfully completes a Business Basics training series and/or Business Basics Community of Practice if offered through CCR&R within the fiscal year. Additionally, participating facilities may receive a one-time, bonus payment if the facility provides proof of Living Wage Certification from Just Economics.
