    CARES Scholarship Funding Extended

    The CARES Scholarship funding has been extended through May 31st.
    This allocation of funding comes to the state from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the "CARES Act"), which has provided our state with $163.6 million in emergency relief to the child care system. The focus of this funding is to cover the child care costs of income-eligible essential workers. 
    Visit this link to the application for more information and eligibility.
    Licensed and regulated providers who are caring for essential workers are able to participate in this new program. The program information profile is an application to be able to accept CARES Scholarship recipients and payments from your local child care resource and referral agency (CCR&R.)
