Montgomery County and the Towns of Blacksburg and Christiansburg have established a grant fund to support the recovery and stabilization of childcare providers and their ability to respond to the changing needs of families as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. The grant program is administered by all three localities, with funding provided by the 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
To be considered for funding, applicants must be existing licensed family day homes, licensed child day centers, religiously exempt child day centers, licensed family day systems, certified preschools, or licensed after-school programs. Facilities must certify that they provided or are willing to provide care for children in March through December 2020, and attest that they are following COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.
The Childcare Providers Recovery Grant is the third grant opportunity offered by the three localities in response to COVID-19. The localities previously announced a Small Business Recovery Grant and a Nonprofit Recovery Grant.
There are a number of eligible grant uses for childcare providers, including but not limited to, payroll expenses, lease or mortgage payments, utilities (electric or gas), insurance, personal protective equipment (PPE), cleaning supplies or services, equipment and inventory purchases, technology enhancement, and professional services. Expenses incurred before March 15; those reimbursed by other federal or state funds; or items not deemed ‘necessary’ are ineligible.
