Baltimore County COVID-19 Relief Grants

To support Baltimore County’s childcare providers as the industry continues to recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, Baltimore County is making $2.5 million in federal ARPA funds available for county-based childcare providers with 14 or fewer registered childcare slots.

This funding is eligibility based.

Eligible providers can receive $5,000 in grant funds to support their childcare operations.

These funds will help providers manage ongoing enrollment challenges and will enable providers to ensure that they are able to provide quality services while maintaining a safe and healthy environment for their staff and the children they care for.

Abilities Network | Project ACT is excited to partner with Baltimore County to support grant applicants and facilitate grant distribution.
