The Office of Early Learning is announcing Phase IV grants which provide an additional $19,797,000 in CARES Act support for all of Florida’s early learning/child care providers.

Phase IV: Additional Support Grants for Early Learning Child Care Providers

Allocations to coalitions will support the 9,920 private providers and 1,631 public/charter school providers. Allocations are based on the capacity data as reported to the Department of Children and Families (DCF) with the exception, that funding for public/charter school providers is based on number of School Readiness and Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) Education children served, not DCF capacity.
