COVID-19 Child Care

Summer Youth Camp Financial Assistance Grant 

This grant is available to Summer Youth Camps so that they can offer financial assistance to families not eligible for the child care subsidy program. Families with an annual household income up to $100,000 may be eligible for help with the cost of summer camp. Families should contact their camp to apply. 





Child Care Payments Based on Enrollment

The Division of Family Development is extending the COVID-19 child care subsidy enrollment-based payment through December 31, 2021. This means tracking child care attendance via swipe cards or phone calls will continue to be on hold and child care providers will continue to be paid based on the number of enrolled children who receive state assistance in their program, rather than attendance. Parents do not need to check their child in and out of care. 


Supplemental Payment for Subsidy Providers

To support the reopening and sustainability of child care providers that are serving children receiving the state child care subsidy, the state will provide supplemental payments of $300 per month for full-time care per subsidy-eligible child or $150 per month for part-time care per subsidy eligible child through August 31, 2021. This includes infants, toddlers, and school-age children.
