Short-term Child Care Assistance for Essential Workers

The federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provided over $41 million in Child Care Development Block Grant funds to the DHS Division of Child Care and Early Childhood Education (DCCECE). An estimated $18 million of that will be used to cover the cost of child care for some essential workers in Arkansas.

• Essential personnel, under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, includes but is not limited to emergency responders, health care providers, public health personnel, manufacturing workers, sanitation workers, child care and early childhood staff, and individuals involved in the food supply chain during pandemic.
• Assistance will be paid directly to the licensed child care provider. The provider must participate in the child care voucher program. To find a child care center that participates in the child care assistance program, click this link: dhs.arkansas.gov/dccece/cclas/facilitysearch.aspx
• The vouchers will be paid during the public health emergency. Payments would cover the full cost of child care during that time, as funding allows.
• If you make less than $2,954.98 each month for a family of two, you may qualify for traditional child care assistance instead of the short-term assistance for essential workers.
