Grants of up to $20,000 to Indiana and Illinois licensed childcare homes and centers and registered ministries in eligible counties to expand the capacity of childcare facilities to provide quality care. Applicants must attend a pre-application meeting and submit an LOI before applying. Programs must be located in the Wabash Valley area, including Clay, Parke, Sullivan, Vermillion, and Vigo Counties in Indiana, and Clark County in Illinois.

The UWWV Success By 6 Impact Council (UWWV SB6) will impact the ALICE population by investing in efforts to promote healthy early childhood development so that children enter school ready to succeed. The UWWV SB6 believes that the availability of high-quality childcare will positively impact the measurements for “kindergarten readiness.”

UWWV SB6 is soliciting proposals to expand the capacity of state-recognized high-quality childcare facilities in the Wabash Valley. Qualified applicants may request funds for expenses which will:

  • Allow childcare programs to become eligible to enroll in and attain a Level 3 or 4 on the Paths to QUALITY Rating Scale or ExceleRate Illinois to improve the quality of care provided to children; Or
  • Allow Level 3 or 4 programs to expand regulated capacity; Or
  • Allow Unlicensed Registered Ministries to meet quality standards to enroll in and attain a Level 3 or 4 in Paths to QUALITY or ExceleRate Illinois. 

United Way of the Wabash Valley is committed to bringing the community together to pursue a bold goal of moving 10,000 households out of financial struggles and into stability. The organization will use the biennially produced ALICE Project report to measure progress toward this long-term outcome. The Success By 6 Impact Council will measure the contributing outcome of “kindergarten readiness” within all Wabash Valley school corporations. To contribute to success in this outcome, this grant requires the applicant to accomplish one of the following outputs:

  1. Increase regulated capacity in an existing Level 3 or 4 Paths to QUALITY or ExceleRate Illinois program; Or,
  2. Attain Level 3 or 4 in Paths to QUALITY or ExceleRate Illinois for an existing program; Or,
  3. For a new program, show progress toward enrolling in Paths to QUALITY or ExceleRate Illinois and attaining Level 3 or 4.

All applicants must submit an online Letter of Intent (LOI) indicating their interest in this funding opportunity. These letters will be used to narrow the field of applicants to a reasonable number who will be asked to submit a full proposal. Organizations are required to attend the LOI and Stewardship Package meeting either virtually or in person.

UWWV awards full requests only; partial funding will not be considered. Because of this, it is important that applicants request exactly what is needed. For example, applicants should not request $25,000, expecting to receive $15,000 in funding; this could disqualify a proposal from consideration.
