Grants are being made available using funding from the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). Programs that propose new, cutting-edge ideas as well as proven strategies will be considered. The grant’s Pre-Application is designed for child care providers currently licensed by the Child Care Licensing (CCL) Program and in good standing with the Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH) with a capacity of at least 13 children.
