Has your program experienced unexpected business expenses associated with the pandemic? If so, the Ohio Child Care Stabilization Sub-Grants can help. The grants, established by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS), are made possible by funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).
4C for Children, SWOAEYC and OCCRRA recently hosted a webinar to share information about the grants, the application process and answer questions. You can view the webinar recording here.
