Stabilization Grant Update Period Extended to 1/19/2023

Because one of our usual communications about Stabilization Grants January Quarterly Update failed to go out as planned and this is the final quarter that the Fixed Cost grant will be offered, we have reopened the January Quarterly Update. If your quarterly update is still due, you must complete it by 4:59 p.m. on Thursday, January 19th to receive the full 3-month payment.

The January Quarterly Update is open now and will close at 4:59 p.m. on Thursday, January 19, 2023.

This is the last chance to get full grant payment for Quarter 6. Don't miss it!

Child care facilities that submit the Quarterly Updates after 4:59 pm on January 19 will receive prorated grant payments:
Submit January 19th 5 p.m.–January 31, lose 1 month's funding.
Submit in February, lose 2 month's funding.
