Child Care

I am a frontline worker in need of child care.  Does this bill help me?

Yes.  States can use their funding through the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) to provide child care assistance to health care sector employees, emergency responders, sanitation workers, and other workers that are deemed essential during the COVID-19 response by public officials.

 

I run a Head Start program and am struggling to maintain operations.  Does this bill help me?
