ARPA: American Rescue Plan Act - Child Care Stabilization Subgrant Program

ARPA: American Rescue Plan Act – Child Care Stabilization Grant

The Child Care Stabilization Subgrant Program was authorized by Congress through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). States received funding to provide direct assistance to eligible child care providers to support their financial stability and offset unexpected costs associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.



Florida’s program is designed to help stabilize providers now, support them to make strategic investments in their employees and programs, and reward high quality and participation in the School Readiness Program, with an emphasis on directing higher rates of support to high-quality programs in an area with a child care infrastructure deficit.



The Division of Early Learning (DEL) is overseeing the Child Care Stabilization Subgrant Program in partnership with the Early Learning Coalitions (ELCs) throughout the State. ELCs will review applications to verify eligibility, confirm tax information, approve applications for payment, and issue payments to providers.


As further guidance, updates, and clarification is provided by the Division of  Early Learning, we will update the information on this page, as soon as we receive information.
