Lead Agency Examples of COVID-19 Relief Funding

These resources highlight the experiences of CCDF Lead Agencies that awarded grants to child care providers in response to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. The resources offer examples of collaboration and planning approaches that Lead Agencies took to successfully create grant programs and distribute COVID-19 relief funding to child care providers. While these grant programs used Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act funding, the Lead Agencies’ experiences offer helpful information for other Lead Agencies as they plan and implement child care stabilization grants funded by the American Rescue Plan Act.

The Office of Child Care would like to thank the CCDF Lead Agencies for their participation and willingness to share their time, experiences, and lessons learned to inform these resources.
