The FY2017 Early Education and Out of School Time (EEOST) Grant Program awards grants of up to one million dollars ($1,000,000), to large group early education and out of school time programs for major capital building projects. The Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) has worked closely with the Community Economic Assistance Development Corporation (CEDAC) and its affiliate, The Children's Investment Fund (CIF), in the development of the pre-application, application materials and Program Guidelines. The Secretary of Administration and Finance has authorized $3,600,000 dollars to be awarded by June 30, 2017. The Grant Program is now entering the next phase where a selected group of those who filed pre-applications have now been invited by EEC to apply. If your program received an Invitation to Apply letter from EEC, please refer to the documents listed below.
