Apply Today for the Child Care Provider Recovery Fund Program
The Child Care Provider Recovery Program provides grants to child care centers that have had to close their doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many child care programs in the County had to close its doors due to lack of revenue and newly established state and local health and safety guidelines. Unfortunately, these closures resulted in a substantial decrease in the number of available, quality child care seats for Prince George’s County families.
Child Care providers in Prince George’s County may apply for grants to cover reopening expenses through the Child Care Provider Recovery Program. Eligible child care providers may receive a grant up to $20,000 for licensed child care centers and up to $3,000 for registered family child care homes.
County Executive Angela Alsobrooks announced an appropriation of $2 million of CARES Act funding to assist with the reopening of those child care centers and family/home-based child care programs that have had difficulty reopening due to financial losses and extra reopening costs. Of the amount appropriated:
- $1.4 million is targeted to licensed child care centers
- $600,000 is targeted to registered family child care homes
