Child Care Stabilization Grants Briefing
June 17, 2021
The National Governors Association, the National Association of Counties and the National Conference of State Legislatures will host a briefing on Thursday, June 24 from 10 – 11 a.m. PT on the Child Care Stabilization Grants included in the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).
The ARPA includes $23.9 billion for states, territories and tribes through grants to address the needs of child care providers struggling to survive or reopen under pandemic conditions. States can use these funds to reimburse programs for pandemic-related costs retroactively to the declaration of the public health emergency on January 31, 2020. Allocations for states can be found on the U.S. Administration for Children Families (ACF) website here and to view guidance on child care stabilization funds please click here.
