We are thrilled by the number of providers and staff who chose to participate in the Workforce Initiative and World Class Workforce grants. Here is an update on our progress in processing payments:

Child care teachers and staff can plan to receive the Workforce Initiative grant payments between mid-July and mid-August. We understand the importance of these payments and are dedicated to processing them as quickly as we are able.
