Child Care Programs,

A fund has been created to support Targeted Small Businesses (TSB) with zero employees that have been economically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program offers eligible small businesses grants up to $10,000 to businesses that are single owners with no employees that are also TSB certified. The link below will take you to the Iowa Economic Development webpage to review all application requirements. If you have additional questions, we recommend you direct them to the program contract holder:


Debi Durham, director of the Iowa Economic Development Authority, and Governor Reynolds announced that small businesses can now apply for up to $25,000 in state grants, serving as a "stop gap" to preserve liquidity.

Child Care Resource and Referral recognizes the importance of Iowa child care businesses. A variety of financial, health and educational resources can be found on our website here. Child Care Consultants are available to assist you in finding resources as needed.  #TogetherWeWill… Care4EachOther
