Child Care Stimulus Grant Program
Applications close on October 30, 2020!
"The Hawai‘i Community Foundation (HCF), together with the Hawaiʻi Department of Human Services (DHS), have announced up to $15 million of Hawaiʻi’s federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds to support the reopening and continuous operation of regulated child care programs across the state.
The goal of the new program is to provide licensed child care programs with one-time, flexible funding to ensure the continuity of their operations, prevent permanent closure and/or enable them to re-open their programs safely and with financial resources. Equally important, the program seeks to ensure that child care facilities are able to meet the additional health and safety measures set by DHS for reducing risk of exposure to COVID-19 among children, families and staff."
