The Orange County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Oct. 20 approved a $5 million emergency CARES Act grant to benefit licensed child-care providers in the county.
First 5 Orange County is working with Charitable Ventures to administer an application process and to disburse and allocate the funds to child-care providers that meet eligibility.
The grant approval comes on the heels of First 5 Orange County’s Child Care Landscape Analysis report, which revealed a harsh landscape for Orange County’s working parents and child-care providers.
Funds will be dispersed on a first-come, first-served basis.
The application process starts Oct. 30 and ends on Nov. 9.
