CARES 3 Child Care Scholarship

The CARES Child Care Scholarship will provide free child care to income eligible essential workers.  The Scholarship program will pay for the cost of child care for children attending a licensed or registered child care provider while funding is available.  This is a short-term/time-limited support for families.
