COVID-19 PUBLIC HEALTH SUPPORT FUNDS FOR CHILD CARE

Applications Now Closed

In July, the state of Minnesota  issued $56.6 million in funds to approximately 7,000 Minnesota child care providers to help ensure the health and safety of children and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic. The new COVID-19 Public Health Support Funds for Child Care program was specifically designed to provide support to all child care providers who qualify.
