Things continue to move fast during this Covid-19 outbreak. We know it has been reported that Congress has struck a deal on a third stimulus package, though few details are known at this time, as the bill is still being written. We do know that the amount being discussed for child care is far less than what is needed, however we have also been told that this won't be the end to the stimulus funding going forward, including a fourth stimulus bill.
What you can do TODAY:
Today, sit down and write down your story, your situation, your challenges. Are you open or closed? If you're a childcare center, are you open, how many families are you supporting? Are you still paying staff or have you had to lay people off? Are you asking parents to continue paying parent fees? Are you a struggling family? Have you been laid off? What do you need?
