A childcare option has been established for families impacted by the Coronavirus.
Using funds from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) has created a childcare scholarship program.
Parents and guardians who have lost a job, experienced a wage reduction, or can’t access childcare while teleworking are eligible to apply, according to a release from Prince William County.
AlphaBEST Education, Inc. will help with the childcare scholarship program.
As many 1,000 kindergarten- through eighth-grade students may participate in the program, which is running from 6 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday until December 30.
For now, it will be offered at these sites:
“Prince William County knows the COVID-19 pandemic has hit some families in our area hard financially,” Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) Chair Ann Wheeler said in a release. “We are happy to partner with Prince William County Schools to offer families some financial relief through this childcare scholarship program.”
More information and the application can be found on the AlphaBEST website.
