Attention: Hamilton County Child Care Programs That Held Temporary Pandemic Child Care (TPCC) Licenses
If you are a child care provider located in Hamilton County that served as a TPCC site, you may be eligible to receive assistance from Hamilton County.

Hamilton County will use a portion of its CARES Act funding to assist child care providers that operated under the emergency pandemic child care license and served Hamilton County Publicly Funded Child Care children. The full application will be released soon. In the meantime, the first step in the application process is to complete a Hamilton County Vendor Registration. Read more on our website.
Encourage Your Families to Complete the Census!
It’s estimated 5% of kids under age 5 were not counted in the 2010 Census. That equals about 1 million young children who were not counted—the highest undercount of any age group.

You can help ensure everyone is counted. Download this flyer and share with your families so they can learn how participating in the 2020 Census is easy, safe, and important.
