For Providers

Eligible child care providers receive reimbursement for serving low-income families and can draw on networks of training and technical assistance resources to help them provide high-quality child care services. Many states, territories, and tribes are committed to building a well-trained, fairly compensated, cohesive child care workforce with jobs built on intentional training and education.
