Child Care Stabilization Grants Coming Soon
Iowa was allocated $200 million (a correction from the earlier notice indicating $227 million) from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to provide stabilization subgrants to current licensed and registered child care providers. DHS has contracted with a partner agency to help support a provider-friendly and efficient application process. This web-based application will be available in the upcoming weeks and DHS will send notification when the application is available. This information will also be available on the DHS website. As a reminder, the Child Care Task Force has released final recommendations.
