Child Care Vouchers for Essential Workers

  • As part of the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security) child care assistance may be available for parents who are considered essential employees during the COVID-19 Pandemic. In order to qualify, you must be an essential worker, you must need child care so you may continue to report to work, and you must complete a child care application. For the purposes of this child care assistance program, the term “essential services” or “essential staff” is not a matter of which businesses are allowed to remain open or not.  This assistance is for workers who are essential with respect to the actual COVID-19 emergency and response.  In other words, those engaged in providing essential services (health care workers, first responders, commercial transport, critical state government operations); individuals involved in making sure the public has access to critical services (food, water, gas, utilities, sanitation, medical, child care); and critical infrastructure operations (communications, child care, national guard mobilization, transportation).
  • To apply, email Provide your name and contact info. Please place “Essential Employee Child Care Request” in the subject line.
