  • American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), ideas wanted for the 77 million dollar funding update!
    • The ARPA Input Survey will be available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TPQWXYF as of Monday, May 3, 2021 at 12:00 PM.
    • We have now received the award letter from the Administration for Families and Children-Office of Child Care, but guidance is not slated to be received until early May.
    • Meanwhile, please share your ideas and thoughts on how we can use these funds to stabilize, expand and innovate in the child care sector throughout the State now and in the future.
    • This survey is a place for you to jot down your ideas – no fancy writing skill necessary – just your invaluable thoughts!
    • The planning process will take some time and we want to base it on short and long term needs and stakeholder input.
    • You will be asked to provide some basic non-identifying information so we know what sector of child care you are representing. There is an option to provide your full contact information, but it is not necessary. 
    • Further, you do not need to provide an answer for the topic headings – just add what is comfortable for you – it can be a couple of words like “staff bonuses” or a lengthy description. 
    • If you run out of room or wish to send an email instead of using the Surveymonkey, please direct your correspondence to eccp@dhhs.nh.gov and put ARPA Ideas in the subject line.
    • Please watch this page for more information and other ways to provide feedback.
    • In addition, we will host an informational webinar when more details become available.
