Idaho has approved 155 applications for the Idaho Child Care Emergency Grant since May 1, totaling more than $1.5 million in assistance to operating childcare businesses.
“These investments are vital to Idaho’s infrastructure as we reopen businesses and families head into summer activities,” said Ericka Rupp, Child Care Program manager in the Department of Health and Welfare (DHW). “Access to safe, quality childcare and after-school programs for families is a critical component of a successful statewide recovery.”
“We want to thank Idaho’s childcare providers for caring for Idaho’s children and for taking the necessary steps to keep your facilities and homes safe,” she added.
