The COVID-19 pandemic has brought drastic changes to Montana’s child care landscape. In an effort to support child care businesses and the families they serve, the Early Childhood Services Bureau (ECSB), will offer Emergency Grants for the purpose of providing financial support to Licensed/Registered programs that have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Provider grants are available in a single grant award for programs currently operating, or with plans to reopen.
These grants are not competitive, if you are licensed or registered and you submit a complete application, you will receive the grant! It is not a reimbursement-based grant; you do not have to spend the money and submit receipts.
For more information, please reference the FAQ document.
