CHild Care Counts 

The Department of Children and Families (DCF) has allocated n funds for Round 3 of the Child Care Counts: Stabilization Payment Program to support Wisconsin’s early care and education community. The Stabilization Payment Program Round 3 runs May 2023 through January 2024. Once approved for payments, eligible providers may continue to receive ongoing monthly payments, providing the financial stability they need to stay open, to recruit and retain qualified staff, and to continue providing high-quality care for children.

These funds will be distributed through two programs targeting the challenges early care and education providers are facing.
