Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker announced Wednesday that about $270 million of Illinois’ share from the federal CARES Act will go towards the Child Care Restoration Grants Program.
The goal of the program is to get child care services up and running as the state reopens so that more people can return to work. Pritzker said feedback from providers intending to apply is an important part of the program's development.
“The full application for disbursement of those dollars will launch on or before July 1 with the advice of all of those child care centers about how those dollars should be distributed,” he said.
The survey is on the website of the Illinois Network of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies. It will be available until Friday, June 19th, at 5 p.m.
