COVID-19 Emergency Child Care

The COVID-19 Emergency Child Care Program helps essential workers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic pay for the cost of child care. Knowing their children have a safe place to learn and play is vital to workers’ ability to do their job and  keep our communities going. The application period is open now and child care cost assistance will be available between Nov. 1 2021 and June 30, 2022.
