As part of the CARES funding, New York State has a new scholarship to cover childcare and help working parents go to their workplace. These scholarships, if approved, cover the period from the date the application is submitted to Jan. 10, 2021. Be sure to apply before funding runs out!
**NOTE: Eligibility requirements for the Child Care Scholarship stipulate that one parent is an essential worker as per the NYS Executive Order or work for a school (teacher, bus driver, receptionist, etc.). In addition, the parent must work outside the home and work at least 20 hours a week. The other parent/step-parent/guardian in the household must also not be available to care for the child.
