Federal Funding Available for Childcare Providers

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo  announced  Thursday that $88.6 million in federal CARES Act funding is available to assist child care providers through NY Forward grants for Covid-19-related care.

The funding is in addition to $30 million made available in the spring and $48.3 million recently awarded to assist child care providers with reopening or restructuring their physical plans to meet new social distancing requirements. 

“Child care is essential to getting people back to work and continuing our New York Forward economic reopening,” Cuomo said. “Every working parent deserves the peace of mind that goes with having a quality child care program where their child can grow and learn in a space that has been adapted to meet the health and safety requirements of this extraordinary time. I urge child care providers to take advantage of this grant opportunity to help ensure the health and safety of the children in their care.”

The New York State Office of Children and Family Services administered the federal CARES Act grants. Child Care Resource and Referral agencies across the state will process payments to providers.
