Do you have a creative idea for early childhood care and education that you have wanted to put into practice? If you are a member of this organization, and can translate your idea into an application for funding, the New York State Association for the Education of Young Children (NYSAEYC) may have a Mini Grant waiting for you. Each year NYSAEYC awards five or six small grants, in amounts up to $500, to applicants who have submitted the most effective proposals for mini projects to enhance programs for young children. These proposals must contain developmentally appropriate objectives. Also, other groups should be able to replicate the project easily and at minimum cost.

Winter 2017: Diaper Drive Program
We recognize the struggle working families and child care programs alike face in Western New York. Many families experience extreme diaper need. Child Care Resource Network's Diaper Drive Program aims to close the diaper gap in WNY, one child care program at a time.
Through this program, we were able to distribute over 25,000 diapers - roughly a full year's supply of diapers to 18 different child care programs in Western New York. In addition to thousands of diapers, providers also received 2 hours of free training from CCRN Education & Training Specialists that re-enforced proper diapering techniques, hand washing, and health and safety.
Funds for this program were raised through donors during 2016's #NYGivesDay, as well as a generous contribution from Western New York Infant Toddler Resource Network.
