Child Care COVID-19 Stability Fund
Recognizing the pivotal role child care centers play in the re-opening of Baltimore City’s economy, Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young has announced the Child Care COVID-19 Stability Fund. The program was established to supplement child care centers that, in many instances, already operate on thin profit margins and struggle to provide quality services given the requirement to maintain a safe environment and appropriately sized workforce for the safety of the children in their care during this global pandemic.
