OEC Stabilization Funding for Childcare Providers

Ready Set Rebuild: Connecticut’s Child Care Recovery Plan

OEC Stabilization Funding is now OPEN!

As long as your program is eligible and has a State Supplier ID, you’ll receive an email from childcarefunding@ctunitedway.org with instructions on how to apply. If you don’t get the email, check your spam folder. 

Child Care Program Stabilization Funding offers money to child care programs recovering from COVID-19. The Office of Early Childhood (OEC) is distributing stabilization funds from the $346 million in relief funding from the federal government. Funds will support COVID-19 related expenses and continued operations of licensed child care programs (DCCC, DCGH, DCFH) and licensed-exempt programs serving Care 4 Kids families (DCEX).

The Women’s Business Development Council (WBDC) in partnership with the OEC, will provide support to child care providers before and after the application opens up.
