BEND, OR -- Earlier this year, Deschutes County and the City of Bend each appropriated 50-thousand dollars to offer bridge grants to child care providers during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The Child Care Resources Director at Neighbor Impact, Karen Prow, says they’ve reached out to 40 child care providers. She says providers can’t serve enough children to make money to cover the cost of running the business.Prow says grants of up to 3-thousand dollars are available to registered and certified family providers and 6-thousand dollars for certified child care providers. She says child care providers need to be star-rated through the Spark quality rated and improvement system to qualify for a grant.
