Full Time
Child Care Registrar

The Fund for Public Health in New York City (FPHNYC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to the advancement of the health and well-being of all New Yorkers.  To this end, in partnership with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), FPHNYC incubates innovative public health initiatives implemented by DOHMH to advance community health throughout the city. It facilitates partnerships, often new and unconventional, between government and the private sector to develop, test, and launch new initiatives. These collaborations speed the execution of demonstration projects, effect expansion of successful pilot programs, and support rapid implementation to meet the public health needs of individuals, families, and communities across New York City.



Invest in New York is a two-year grant award to DOHMH to build and expand childcare capacity in neighborhoods designated as childcare “deserts.”  An area is identified as a childcare “desert” if there are three or more children under the age of five per available childcare slot in local day care centers, family day care, or group family day care programs. Lack of access to quality childcare is preventing many families from returning to the workforce. Invest in New York aims to increase access to childcare in New York City.
