The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), the latest COVID-19 relief package, provides $1.9 trillion in funding and policy changes aimed at mitigating the impacts of the ongoing pandemic. In addition to the many provisions directly targeting support to the early care and learning system, the relief package also contains important supports for accessing healthcare and economic benefits, such as tax credits.
Start Early and the Shriver Center on Poverty Law are pleased to host a two-part webinar series for early care and learning professionals that will provide an overview of what is currently known about the healthcare and economic supports available through the ARPA and how to access them. The webinar series is intended to help early care and learning professionals understand these important supports so that they can access them for themselves and assist families they work with to access them as well.
Both webinars will be recorded and available for on-demand viewing.
