CCSA COVID-19 Relief Fund

Give Now To Support NC Child Care Programs

Your donation today directly helps early childhood educators and workers across our state best care for the children of essential workers and of families returning to work. COVID-19 has left child care programs to operate in extreme circumstances while providing safe and loving care to children. Child care educators are serving children and families with dwindling supplies, limited personal protective gear and increased health and safety guidelines. You can immediately help us solve this problem.

Your support will help North Carolina child care programs struggling to meet the needs of essential workers and families returning to work.

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 and families returning to work, CCSA will be a lifeline for programs to get the tools and resources they need during this challenging time.

Thank you to North Carolina’s Smart Start network and CCR&Rs for collaborating on Phase I of the relief fund. CCSA is now accepting competitive RFAs for Phase II of the relief fund. Learn more here.
