DCYF Child Care Stabilization Grant

As a result of the Federal American Rescue Plan Act, grant funds were available to help stabilize, support, and grow the diverse early learning workforce to rebuild a stronger child care system and expand access to affordable, high-quality child care.

The grant was available from Oct. 2021 – Sept. 2022. There were 6,852 applications approved and grant awards were distributed, totaling $363,355,750.  This was a one-time grant, and it will not reopen in the future.
