CARES Child Care Scholarships
NYS is making $30 million available for free child care to essential workers at no cost to the worker. Essential workers using a licensed or registered child care provider will receive a scholarship for the cost of care through May 15th, 2020. To qualify for the scholarship, workers must have a household income less than 300 percent of the federal poverty level, or $78,600 annually for a family of four. The CARES Child Care Scholarship will be available as long as the funds to support it are available – we encourage all eligible persons to apply ASAP as funding is limited. Please see here for more information on the application process. There was also an article in the Times Union about this.
