Developing and financing quality child care facilities requires significant technical assistance for both child care providers, often inexperienced with real estate and financing transactions, and community developers, who are typically unfamiliar with the requirements of successful early childhood development programs. LIIF works with stakeholders to support child care facilities projects from planning through financing, design and construction. LIIF offers program-specific one-on-one technical assistance, group trainings and workshops to its grantees, borrowers and other community development organizations throughout California.
