April 20, 2020 – Emergency child care is now available for essential workers and at-risk children and families. Services are temporary and can only be provided until June 30, 2020 or until the State of Emergency has ended, whichever occurs first. Some families will qualify for subsidized child care, but it is unlikely that all eligible families will receive funding. If you are an essential worker looking for child care, please submit your child care needs through this form.
