Workforce Retention Grant

Governor Kathy Hochul announced a $500 million investment in the FY 2024 budget to bolster New York’s child care workforce through the Workforce Retention Grant program. Funding from the program will support up to 150,000 child care workers with bonus payments (ranging from $2,300 to $3,000 to staff in caregiving roles), as well as funding to support child care programs’ efforts to recruit new staff, offer sign-on and referral bonuses, and more. Learn more about this program and the requirements involved. The deadline to apply is September 15, 2023.
