Child Care Facilities NOFA

NOFA 2019 Cover Page

The City of San Mateo has identified child care as a priority within the San Mateo community. A Child Care Development Fee was established to provide financial assistance with the development or capital expansion of child care facilities to increase the number of high quality child care spaces.

This Notice of Funding Available (NOFA) is to invite proposals for the use of funds specifically to develop, expand, or otherwise enhance child care facilities that will result in the increase of the number of high quality child care spaces available to families with children ages birth up to age 5, or to facilities providing licensed school-age care.
