Childcare in Minnesota

MN DEED Child Care Economic Development Grant and Minnesota First Children's Finance

The Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), through its Economic Development Division, is awarding grants to be used to implement solutions to reduce the child care shortage in the state. First Children's Finance's (FCF) Minnesota team is co-located in our national headquarters in Minneapolis, MN. As the oldest state office, the Minnesota team has developed alongside the national vision for our organization. Programs and services have been continuously been offered across Minnesota since our founding in 1991.Today, Minnesota’s team members can be found in every region of the state, serving child care business clients and communities in rural areas, population centers and the Twin Cities metro area. Although the need for excellent child care exists in every community, the Minnesota team recognizes the need for a diversity of approaches to serve rural child care businesses as well!
