We are sending the following on behalf of the Office of Early Learning. Questions should be directed to tina.shockley@doe.k12.de.us. Delaware Stars is not able to provide any additional information or answer questions.

Dear Early Learning Provider:
We are pleased to announce that Enhanced Reimbursement for December will be open to all providers that are currently open and serving children, regardless of when you re-opened. Therefore, if you have vacant seats that you are not receiving payment for (POC or private pay), you are eligible to apply for Enhanced Reimbursement.

Applications will be available on 12/15/2020 for eligible providers to submit their information. Applications can be accessed via the following website: https://coronavirus.delaware.gov/childcare-reimbursement/

Unfortunately, we will not be able to consider retroactive payments for prior months and please be reminded that Enhanced Reimbursement will end with the month of December. It is also important to note that all funds paid through Enhanced Reimbursement must be used for expenses incurred prior to 12/30/2020.
Once again, thank you for your continued support.
Department of Education
