Important Information for Child Care Providers:
Effective June 1, 2020, the Texas Workforce Commission will implement new Stabilization Grants for closed providers participating in the subsidy program. These Stabilization Grants will replace the current payments. Grants will be based on the provider’s licensed capacity and the 75th percentile of the average local market rate for child care. Texas Rising Star certified providers will receive a 5% enhanced grant amount. Stabilization Grants will not exceed $10,000 (prior to the 5% enhancement for TRS providers) and will be paid to eligible providers every month they cannot open for a period to be evaluated by the Commission. Stabilization Grants will be paid to eligible providers every month they cannot open for a period to be evaluated by the Commission. Read more about Stabilization Grants.
Effective June 1, the Texas Workforce Commission will reinstate the requirement for parents receiving financial assistance to pay for a portion of their costs. As children return to their child care programs, parents will resume paying their share of costs. TWC will also continue to pay providers when children are absent and is paying a 25% enhanced reimbursement rate over and above what child care programs regularly receive. If parents are unable to meet this financial obligation, then they must contact the Child Care Contact Center at 1-800-234-9306.
