There are two rounds of applications that may use the same application form template. The first application is submitted by interested childcare providers to their local government sponsor. This will be used by the local government to assess eligibility and competitiveness and to assist the local government in determining which, if any, projects it would like to submit to GNRC for formal evaluation as part of the second round of application. The second round application will be evaluated and scored by GNRC in determining program awards. The second application will be shared publicly and with the TN Department of Economic and Community Development.
