“The childcare sector is very important, as our economy cannot be sustainable if parents do not have safe places for their children to be cared for and educated while they are working,” said Supervisor Nathan Fletcher, co- chair of the county’s COVID-19 subcommittee. “This new $25 million grant program will help childcare providers make their centers safe during the coronavirus pandemic and allow them to remain open so parents can return to work.”Funding will be allocated based on predetermined categories outlined in the CARES Act agreement. Large family childcare providers — licensed to care for a maximum of 14 children — will be eligible to receive up to $3,500 and small family childcare providers — licensed to care for a maximum of eight children — will be eligible for up to $2,750.
