Child Care Grant Application Process Open
Governor Walz this week announced that the application process for emergency grants for child care providers is open. This funding was a part of the comprehensive COVID-19 emergency package of bills we passed last week.
There are approximately 420,000 children under the age of 12 who live in a household of an essential worker within a critical sector. Of these, the state estimates that during this peacetime emergency, about 270,000 children will need care and approximately 120,000 are likely to need and use licensed child care settings. Visit this webpage to learn more about grant availability.
