Home Grown is sharing state recommendations for scaling effective stabilization funds for home-based child care providers. In April 2020, Home Grown and its members created the Home-Based Child Care (HBCC) Emergency Fund with $1.2 million in funding to catalyze the development of regional funds that provide direct financial support to home-based child care (HBCC) providers, including both regulated family child care (FCC) providers and family, friend, and neighbor (FFN) caregivers across the nation. Here we share lessons learned from our emergency fund to inform state efforts to create or expand relief and stabilization grant programs for home-based child care.
