Indiana CARES About Child Care FUND

The Indiana CARES About Child Care fund provides critical relief funds to programs affected by the pandemic. The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) has provided CARES Act funds to local Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) agencies to distribute to eligible providers in their areas. Providers may use these funds to reimburse themselves for equipment and supplies, staffing and professional services needed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are also emergency dollars available to providers who have had to temporarily close so that they can reopen. For more information and to apply please visit Indiana CARES About Child Care FUND website.
