Wabasha Port Authority Childcare Grant Program

The Wabasha Port Authority recently concluded a successful childcare grant program that led to four new in-home providers and 40 new childcare slots.

In July of 2022 First Children’s Finance (FCF), a non-profit child care organization based in the Twin Cities, awarded the Port Authority a $30,000 grant to help start-up childcare businesses in Wabasha.

Combined with $15,000 matching dollars the City of Wabasha set aside from its American Rescue Plan Act funds for child care, the Port Authority was able to provide four start-up in-home childcare businesses $9,000 to help get their business off the ground, and one existing in-home childcare business $2,500 to invest in new toys, equipment, and appliances.
