CARES Supply Funds for Providers!!!!
The Child Care Connections has limited CARES funding available for those licensed and registered programs that have been open during the COVID19 pandemic/NY Pause. The application has previously been emailed (or mailed to those programs with no email listed with their license or registration) and is now closed so proper ordering could take place. Supplies are very difficult to locate, let alone have delivered in a timely manner.  We have ordered extra basic cleaning supplies and other necessary items. If you did not submit the survey but have been operating during the NY pause you can contact the office after July 10th to see what items are available for pick up.

The CARES grant is approximately $600 of supplies for each open program that completed the application. The grant may not be used for reimbursements or be distributed in the form of money. 

We have started delivering and scheduling pick up for the majority of items received. As more supplies are received you will be contacted.
