COVID-19 Impact

A NAEYC survey reported in April 2020 that 60% of child care programs were completely closed in Michigan. Of providers who are still open, 81% were operating at less than 25% capacity.

Emergency Fund

Early Childhood Investment Corporation, with support from Home Grown and the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation, will provide grants of up to $2,000 to 43 providers in Washtenaw County. The grants will support licensed home-based child care providers who remain open and care for children of the essential workforce, so they can sustain their business during and following the state of emergency.
