The WNY Childcare Resource Network recently announced that it is offering scholarships for childcare for essential workers who are in need of support.
Essential workers using a regulated child care provider will receive a scholarship for the cost of care as long as the funds to support it are available. All licensed and regulated providers who are caring for essential workers are able to participate in this new program.
Access to affordable and safe child care is a barrier for working parents during the best of times, and even more so during a crisis. New York State’s plan will ensure that the workforce that is needed to protect and care for the public during this pandemic have the child care that allows them to continue to serve us all.
Visit the CARES Child Care Scholarship website here for more information and application.
