Awarding Child Care Education Scholarship Supplements
ACCESS — Awarding Child Care Education Scholarship Supplements is an initiative funded through the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) to mitigate the negative financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Georgia’s child care industry and to help eligible Georgia families (also negatively impacted by the pandemic) pay for child care.
The purpose of ACCESS is to temporarily support CAPS families by paying for child care. Through ACCESS, CAPS will pay the provider their full published rate for the type of care provided, including the family fee, from May 17, 2021 through service period ending October 2, 2022. CAPS families will not pay the provider any tuition related fees or co-payments for child care services during this period of time.
