Welcome

All children deserve the opportunity to learn and develop in well-designed learning spaces. We know that clean, safe and healthy environments are an important component of successful teaching and learning.

For nearly 30 years, Children’s Investment Fund has been providing technical expertise and financing to non-profit child care centers planning to improve or expand their facilities. If you are a non-profit organization, we look forward to helping you turn your vision of high-quality space into a reality.

  • PPP Technical Assistance Initiative – An Update

    In April, the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) asked the Children’s Investment Fund (CIF) to create a technical assistance (TA) initiative to increase early childhood education and out-of-school time (ECE/OST) access to federal small business loans, specifically the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), in order to help businesses stay afloat. Children’s Investment Fund assembled a team to provide one-on-one technical support to the child care field, consisting of several partners: CliftonLarsonAllen, Clarendon Early Education Services, Goodwin Procter’s pro bono Neighborhood Business Initiative, and CEDAC staff. From April to August, the team provided emergency technical assistance to 278 child care providers in Massachusetts. Read INSITES.
