Child Care Relief Fund Grants!
The Child Care Relief Fund is a non-competitive grant program that helps child care providers in Michigan cover costs during the COVID-19 state of emergency. The goal of the program is to help child care providers stay in business and make child care more affordable for Michigan families.
Note: Due to volume of applications and temporary State layoffs, grant processing will take 4-6 weeks.
