Orange County’s CARES Act Funding will provide approximately $36.5 million of funding to social-service nonprofits and agencies to expand services and provide a continuity of service for Orange County residents.
Distribution of a limited amount of funds will be processed through a contractual agreement between select community organizations. Currently, there are two grant programs available: (1) the Childcare Supplement Fund Program managed by the Early Learning Coalition of Orange County; and (2) a program to assist social-service nonprofits, to be announced at a later date.
This program is for childcare providers, including child care programs that are legally operating as a licensed, licensed exempt, and registered early care and education programs in Orange County, Florida. Such childcare providers can, depending on their size, apply for up to $12,000 to supplement the cost of purchased necessary supplies, adjusted staffing, and modified classroom space and materials to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at their facilities. Childcare providers intending to apply for this program are advised to contact the program administrator, the Early Learning Coalition of Orange County (“ELOCC”), for more details regarding what qualifies as eligible COVID-19 related costs.
A total of $4.9 million will be available for this program. The County reserves the right to adjust program requirements and criteria in order to: (a) best meet the program’s intent; and (b) best serve the interests of the public.
Childcare providers with questions about the program, eligibility criteria, or required documents may contact the Early Learning Coalition of Orange County.
