Q & A Based on Recent Survey
Thank you to everyone who responded to our recent survey! In addition to the critical information we received in your responses, we also received some questions. We’ll be highlighting some of those questions and providing answers in this and future newsletters.
Question: How is 4C for Children using the information collected through the survey?
Answer: The information you supply will help us connect local families in need of care to your program as well as help give us a clearer idea of the types of resources and supports that you need to successfully reopen your program.
Question: Will there be funding to help offset the low ratios?
Answer: Governor DeWine is using the CARES Act to supply programs that reopen with grants. The amount of these grants and how they will be distributed are still being determined. 4C for Children will share that information in our daily communications as soon as we know.
