ECHO Fund Grants

The Early Childhood Opportunity (ECHO) Fund is an innovative grant program that seeks to increase access to high-quality early care and education for New Orleans children, birth through age four, by directly funding early child care centers.

Past ECHO Fund Grant Opportunities

The Spring 2022 Hurricane Ida Relief ECHO Fund was made possible through the fundraising efforts of the Louisiana Policy Institute for Children and Agenda for Children. Through the generosity of private donors, Save the Children, Baton Rouge Area Foundation, Entergy, and the Greater New Orleans Foundation, this fund will provide one-time small financial relief grants to Type I, Type II, Type III early learning centers and CCAP-registered family child care homes located in parishes that experienced significant damages due to Hurricane Ida. The grant application was open from February 3rd – February 11th, 2022. The grant term concluded on Tuesday, March 31st, 2022.
