COVID-19 RESPONSE

This is an extraordinary time with so many unknowns—so many questions, fears, worries—leaving all of us overwhelmed. We share your worry about how children and families are doing without the structure of work and early education programs. Through our surveys, we heard your concerns how early educators, family child care providers and programs will survive this economic turmoil. Be assured, there are local, state and national resources fighting for children, families, educators, providers and the early education and care system. We are in this together.

Is financial assistance available to early childhood and out-of-school time providers who are hosting school-age remote learners? 
Yes! The state allocated $12.1 million through the CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Fund and the Governor's Emergency Education Relief Fund (GEER) to create the Remote Learning Support Services Grants. The application is due November 10, 2020. Each eligible city or town must determine a "Lead Applicant". The Lead Applicant will be responsible for determining which organizations receive funding for this grant. If you are a community provider offering remote learning support services contact your city or town ASAP in order to be considered for grant funding. You can view the Request for Response and the Frequently Asked Questions for more info.
