Our thoughts are with you as we all face the challenges of coping with the outbreak of the Coronavirus and the rapid changes it is bringing to our daily lives. We know that parents, teachers and caregivers are significantly impacted right now, so we will be continuing our advocacy work on behalf of young children and their families.

This page will serve as a platform for complimentary distance learning resources for families at home affected by COVID-19.

Child Care Provider COVID-19 Relief Fund

Smart Start of Mecklenburg County has established the Child Care Provider COVID-19 Relief Fund in order to offer assistance to licensed centers and homes actively serving children or working to reopen. Centers throughout the County will have the opportunity to apply for one-time grant funds to assist with COVID-19 related expenses incurred.  While we know the funding we provide will not meet all of the needs faced by centers, we are hopeful that funds will be helpful during this critical time. Applications will be accepted through July 20th, or until funds are expended.  Please note that centers are eligible for only one funding grant; multiple applications will not be accepted.  Please be prepared to submit your form W9 along with the application. You may email us at covid19@smartstartof meck.org or call 704-377-6588 with questions.
