Attention: All Executive Officers and Program Directors of California Department of Education Early Learning and Care Programs and Operators of Private Programs
On April 29, 2020, the CDE ELCD announced funds authorized by the Governor and Legislature to provide funding to providers for cleaning, personal protective equipment, and other supplies to support emergency childcare during the COVID-19 State of Emergency.
The CDE, ELCD has released a letter to update the Apportionment Guidance to Resource and Referral (R&R) Program Contractors. The purpose of this guidance is to revise some of the content from the original guidance letter dated April 29, 2020. Some of the items superseded by this guidance include the timeline for expending Cleaning and Supplies for Childcare Providers (CSCP) funding, clarifying eligible providers, use of funds, and reporting the use of funds to the CDE. Content from the April 29 letter that is not superseded by this letter remains in effect.
The letter can be found on ELCD’s COVID-19 Guidance and Resources web page: https://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/cd/re/elcdcovid19.asp
If you have any questions about these funds, please refer to ELCDEmergency@cde.ca.gov.
