Multi-Source Funding for Child Care Programs.
Alger, Harriet; Fountain, Judith B.
Guidelines for implementing a multi-source approach to funding child care programs are offered in this paper. The funding plan discussed consists of five steps: (1) building a climate of acceptance, (2) documenting the need for funds, (3) establishing realistic short- and long-term goals, (4) identifying possible funding sources and their special interests and political frameworks, and (5) making coalitions with individuals and groups with common concerns and interests. The methods of raising funds and sources of funding described in this paper have been developed successfully in several states, in urban and small town settings, and in Head Start, day care, and nursery schools. While these programs were non-profit, it is suggested that some aspects of the plan can be used by proprietary centers. (RH)
