 Michigan's Child Care Stabilization Grant

Child care providers are heroes. We are grateful for the work you do for our children and communities. This fall, the Legislature passed, and Governor Whitmer signed a budget that includes over $700 million in grant funding to support child care providers like you.

These funds are available to help keep your doors open and focus on what matters most-supporting kids and families.

This website provides all the information you need to apply for the Child Care Stabilization Grant, track your expenses, and make investments in your program and facility.
