Division of Human Providers pronounces two grants to assist little one care suppliers | Information

Following the announcement of two new grants by the Colorado Department of Human Services, a $ 35 million aid grant will be available to childcare workers across the state shortly by the end of the month.

Childcare workers currently in operation or planning to reopen by February 28 are eligible for the funds.

“The Child Care Relief Grant program will provide much-needed support to childcare workers across Colorado who have been incredibly supportive of families during the pandemic,” said Mary Alice Cohen, director of the Office of Early Childhood, in a press release. “Despite the vital role they play in our economy, childcare companies have suffered from the pandemic. This funding will help providers keep their doors open and ensure families don’t lose their childcare.”

The grants will range from $ 500 to $ 35,000, and any amount awarded will be determined based on the vendor’s capacity and quality level, CDHS representatives said

In addition to the initial $ 35 million grant program, childcare workers will have an additional $ 10 million grant available later this year.
