2023 Early Childhood Affordability Grant Program
In August 2023, the Ashland City Council adopted the Early Childhood Affordability Grant Program plan and authorized City staff to begin implementation. This plan addresses childcare and early learning affordability, and access for Ashland families.
The Early Learning Childhood Program is a pilot grant program for childcare providers in Ashland to allow them to offer affordability scholarships to qualified low and moderate Ashland households seeking early childcare options. This pilot program will allow for continual evaluation and updating throughout the initial 2023-2024 school/childcare year.
The grants will be issued in the fall to licensed preschools or daycare providers in Ashland who will in turn provide scholarships to families who are eligible for assistance.
Applications open September 7, 2023, with a submission deadline of September 27, 2023.
