Gov. Tom Wolf recently announced a $98 million grant opportunity for certified child care providers to support workforce recruitment and retention. Funded by American Rescue Plan Act funding received specifically for child care providers and their critical workforce, this funding can support providers seeking to recognize staff dedication through retention bonuses and can assist with personnel development and recruitment.

“Child care professionals spend their lives working in service to others, and the benefits of their work are seen not just by families but by all sectors of society that are able to function because our children are safe and learning,” said Wolf. “We must recognize and reward their investment so we may all continue to realize the intergenerational benefits of their contributions to children, communities and our commonwealth’s economy.”

Applications for these grants will be accepted through June 17. Funds will be disbursed to approved providers beginning July 1 until Sept. 30. More information about how to apply for this funding is available at pakey.org
