CCSA COVID-19 Relief Fund

In light of the pandemic, Child Care Services Association (CCSA) created the CCSA COVID-19 Relief Fund for North Carolina’s child care programs. CCSA has always played a role in helping child care programs provide the highest quality early learning experience for our state’s youngest children. Now that programs are struggling to meet the needs of our workforce, CCSA will be a lifeline for programs to get the tools and resources they need during this challenging time. More information about the relief fund, including how you can help, can be found here.
