child care tuition as part of the stimulus package.


The Easy Application Process:
Step 1 . Check that you are income eligible by clicking here.
Step 2 . If you are income eligible, complete and submit the easy online application using this link below (takes less than 2 minutes!).
Step 3 . The completed application will be quickly reviewed by your local Child Care Council (likely within 24-hours!).
Step 4.  The Child Care Council will reach out to you to let know that you will need to submit a letter from your employer stating that you are an essential worker who  cannot work from home  (if you can get that asap that would be great).
Step 5.  Once they get that letter, your local Child Care Council will determine your eligibility.
If approved they will arrange to pay for your child care for the 4 week period.
Step 6.  Good luck and if you have any questions on how to complete the process please contact Cassandra: 845-330-0199 or registration@healthykidsprograms.com
