Funding for local child care
MARYLAND – Child care centers and providers received an announcement from Governor Larry Hogan about a grant program specifically for day care centers and providers.
The Maryland State Department of Education established a $60 million grant program to support child care programs throughout the state. These funds can go towards operating costs and address lost revenue.
This grant program comes as an addition to previous efforts to support child care providers reopening efforts, sanitization and personal protective equipment, as well as child care costs.
Child care facilities in the area say they’re grateful for the help they’ve already received, considering this year has been challenging on not just the child care facilities, but the children as well.
One local day care center heard about the grant program and said “We have been blessed with with all the help the Government has provided. Anything we are able to get helps out a lot, especially for the kids.”
