NJ Childcare Assistance Grant Available
Families in need of full or part-time child care due to their child’s remote learning schedule can apply for a childcare/tuition grant HERE. The grant program reserves up to $250M from the federal Coronavirus Relief Fund and is administered by the State of NJ.
As part of this initiative, the state will pay your licensed or registered child care provider from September 1, 2020 through December 30, 2020 for child care during the school day. To be eligible for this assistance, your child must be attending school remotely, either part-time or full-time. You do not have to do anything to receive this expanded care as Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (CCR&R) have reached out to eligible families. If you have not been contacted, you can reach out to your local CCR&R for assistance.
