The NJ American Rescue Plan (ARP) Stabilization Grant provides financial relief to licensed child care providers and registered family child care providers to support key operating expenses. The grant may be used for wages and benefits, insurance, rent, mortgage, utilities, cleaning and sanitizing, professional development related to health and safety, mental health services, and other operational expenses to remain open and operating. 

Providers must have been licensed or registered as of March 11, 2021 to qualify and meet the Child Care Development Block Grant (CCDBG) health and safety requirements, including trainings and comprehensive background checks, at time of application.
These non-competitive grants, which will be available soon, provide up to $80,000 for licensed child care providers (depending on license capacity and estimated monthly expenses) and a $2,000 payment for family child care providers, issued in the first payment installment.  
More information will be posted on this page in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, you can visit the Administration for Children & Families, Early Childhood Training and Technical Assistance System website for information.
