Thank you for continuing to step up to serve the needs of Delaware's children and their families during the pandemic. With children now in school, many of you have taken on the demands of overseeing remote learning, which requires additional resources to be effective.
The State of Delaware and the University of Delaware are partnering to provide Early Childhood Education (ECE) School-Age Remote Learning Grants for licensed child care programs serving school-age children engaged in remote or hybrid learning.
Grants are between $500 and $7,500 and are for additional expenditures necessary for serving school-age children engaged in remote learning due to COVID-19. The grants are for expenditures incurred between August 4, 2020 and December 30, 2020.
The priority of awarding funds will focus on four categories: staffing, technology, furniture, and school supplies. Additional categories (services, classroom materials, Internet services, and health and safety supplies) may be eligible with clear justification and documentation.
We will accept applications through November 13. It is important to act quickly to receive this reimbursement. There is a fixed amount of money to distribute.
For more information, please visit the grant webpage on the Delaware Stars website to access the application and for helpful resources to assist you with completing the requirements.
