Building for the Future of Maryland’s Young Children

The NIEER has released an article describing how they plan to use the funds received for the American Rescue Plan under the Biden administration.

For the $192 M in 2021 Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA) funds Maryland is prioritizing three big buckets:

  • Providing financial support to parents with the cost of child care by providing relief for parents by, for example, reducing or waiving copays.
  • Investments to help the early care and education workforce directly, and this includes all staff supporting children in programs.
  • The third area is improving quality, including mental health services, professional learning, coaching, and shared services.
