Association for Supportive Child Care

COVID-19 Impact

Roughly 75% of child care providers in Arizona, including school programs, faced at least a temporary closure.

Currently, almost 90% of family, friend, and neighbor caregiver applications that ASCC has received for the emergency fund have had the employment of someone in their household impacted by COVID-19.

With the support of Home Grown, the Association for Supportive Child Care will award $300 gift cards to 366 Family, Friend, and Neighbor (FFN) home-based child care providers across the State of Arizona. This will provide economic support to caregivers and gather data on the impact of COVID-19 on employment status in their households.

Home Grown is a national collaborative of funders committed to improving the quality of and access to home-based child care with a mission to increase access to and the quality of home-based child care.
