Nearly 800 Tennessee childcare agencies have received grants to help them stay afloat during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to a news release from ChildcareTennessee, it has been working with the Tennessee Department of Human Services to ensure that children will still have child care to return to as Tennessee gradually begins reopening. Grants for up to 60 days of lost income are still available, including retroactively back to March. There are also grants to support agencies experiencing reduced attendance and increased operating costs due to the pandemic.
