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.
