Funders and Supporters

The work of the B8 Workforce Core Team has been supported by a series of grants from the McKnight Foundation since 2014 along with the support of the West Central Initiative.

We are grateful to have received a grant from the Sheltering Arms Foundation to support community outreach in 2018.

Due to the financial support of the Minnesota Department of Education, the Minnesota Department of Human Services, as well as Child Care Aware of Minnesota, our team was able to hold two focus groups (one in urban Minnesota and one in rural Minnesota) to grasp an understanding of the demographics and needs within those areas.

The members of the B8 Workforce Core Team, Subcommittee members as well as others who have participated in our symposium or meetings have all been provided in-kind.  This work would not be possible without their many hours of commitment and dedication.
