National COVID-19 Resources

Child Care Stabilization Grants

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) (Pub. Law 117-2), signed on March 11, 2021, included nearly $24 billion in Child Care Stabilization Grants to be allocated to states, territories, and Tribes. The goal of the child care stabilization grants is to provide rapid financial relief to child care providers to help them pay for unexpected business costs they faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. By providing much needed economic relief to child care providers, this funding will help them stay open so that that they may continue to serve working families.

To learn more about which child care providers are eligible, how to apply, and how funds can be used in your state, territory, or Tribe, visit the Child Care Providers: State and Territory COVID-19 Resources page.

Vaccine Resources

Parents, ask your child care providers if they have received their COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccinations are free and available to child care providers through the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. Learn more about the vaccine, the campaign to get all child care providers vaccinated by the end of March 2021, and how child care providers can schedule vaccinations.
