In response to the COVID-19 emergency, the Office of Early Childhood (OEC) has created a series of new, short-term CTCARES programs to help families and child care providers. They offer access to child care, financial help, and more. Read about our programs and find out if you can apply.
OEC has 2 active CTCARES programs:
- CTCARES for Child Care Businesses offers supports to help you operate your program during COVID-19. Since every program has different needs, we are offering a “Care Package” — a variety of subsidies, trainings, and other opportunities. Learn about CTCARES for Child Care Businesses.
- CTCARES for Family Child Care offers licensed family child care providers access to supports during COVID-19. Our goal is to help your program succeed so you can continue to do your vital work. Learn about CTCARES for Family Child Care.
OEC developed several other CTCARES programs that are no longer active, including CTCARES for Child Care, CTCARES for Frontline Workers, and CTCARES for Hospital Workers. Learn more on our past CTCARES programs page.
