We are making a substantial investment in future generations by offering $2.1 million toward efforts to increase the availability of child care in San Mateo. One of the most challenging problems families face is having access to high-quality, affordable child care and the City is leveraging developer fees to expand the number of spaces for children.
Applications are now being accepted and there will be an informational meeting from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursday, January 24. Applicants may include nonprofits, home businesses, schools and anyone with a proposal to increase the number of licensed child care spaces in San Mateo.
We are proud to be the first in San Mateo County to offer this type of funding and encourage interested parties to review our Notice of Funding Availability. The deadline to apply is February 21, 2019.
