Leadership and staff at Bright Promises Foundation know that low-income children and families across the Greater Metropolitan Chicago area are being significantly impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. We also know this pandemic threatens the organizations that serve them as well and in extraordinary ways, including early childhood centers.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bright Promises made a first round of emergency grants to support select early childhood centers and home-based providers currently open for emergency childcare to children of first responders and essential workers.
A second round of grant proposals is currently being accepted by invitation only. Invited proposals are due Friday, July 24 by 5:00pm. For additional information, please email Shilpa Bavikatte, EQUIP program officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org
