Details: Licensed day cares impacted by the coronavirus outbreak can now file an application for grant money through the Tennessee Department of Human Services. Last week, Governor Bill Lee announced the state would make $10 million available for child care agencies negatively impacted by recent closures. “The COVID-19 emergency and recent tornado disaster have combined to create substantial challenges for our child care partners,” said TDHS Commissioner Danielle W. Barnes. “These grants will provide the assistance agencies need to sustain critical staff and operations resources as they respond to and recover from these events. Parents, businesses, and children all depend on quality early childhood education that’s safe and healthy.”
