Michigan Business Development Programs

Growth Fund Business Development & Grant Program

The Growth Fund Business Development & Grant Program is a multi-year program designed to move successful childcare businesses “to the next level” in their business operations and growth.

Selected businesses develop and implement customized business improvement plans, and receive planning and implementation grants to support their growth. A volunteer board of Growth Fund Advisors – local childcare and business experts – screens applicants and advises participants on their business improvement plans.

The Michigan Growth Fund Program serves independent childcare centers. The Michigan Multi-Service Growth Fund Program serves childcare centers located within larger, multi-service institutions:
