DELCO COVID Support
Reducing child care cost in Delaware County.
The Delaware County Council has unanimously approved and funded up to $2M for DELCO School Age Child Care COVID Support. These resources are for families who have found themselves with additional child care related costs as a result of needing school aged care for their children who are not able to attend school full time due to the pandemic.
CCPN worked closely with ELRC 15, and the Delaware County Women’s Commission on this project. Families will apply for children who need assistance. Early Learning Centers will apply in order to receive the funds for subsidized care. Child Care programs will be sent payments directly for the children who are cared for at their centers in order to reduce the cost of care for families that are eligible. Families will be responsible for any additional costs.
