Greater Oshkosh Childcare Taskforce

Greater Oshkosh Childcare Benefits Study

In 2022, a cohort of Oshkosh non-profit and organizations including GOEDC received a Dream Up! Grant focused on increasing the childcare supply in our region. Over the past 18 months the efforts of that group has created 146 new childcare spots! Great job to all the partners!

While we celebrate this success, we know the work is not done. To continue the work started with this grant, we are excited to announce the Greater Oshkosh Childcare Task Force. GOEDC staff joins United Way of Oshkosh, Childcare Resource and Referral Fox Valley, Winnebago County Health, and Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce to continue to collaborate on a top workforce issue.

The childcare issue extends well beyond Winnebago County and collaboration is the best path towards addressing it. The efforts of this group aim to assist our region in staying competitive in workforce development by reducing the childcare barrier. Help them with their efforts by completing the 2 minute survey below.
