Childcare Maps spotlighted by NBC10
The Reinvestment Fund’s Policy Solutions, PolicyMap, and Lending teams have been working together to increase access to high-quality childcare in Philadelphia.
The William Penn Foundation made a grant to TRF to develop comprehensive information about the availability of high-quality early childhood education in Philadelphia and the accessibility of child care for families with low-incomes. TRF’s analysis is accessible through ChildcareMap (www.childcaremap.org), which is hosted by PolicyMap.
As the next phase, TRF, along with Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) and the William Penn Foundation, are announcing a new partnership to finance the expansion of high-quality early childhood education (ECE) facilities in Philadelphia called the Fund for Quality (www.fundforquality.org).
