Our goal is to provide as many Oklahoma care programs as much funding as possible. So long as a provider is licensed with OKDHS, they are eligible to be awarded an ARPA grant. Grant size varies based upon childcare size and operating expenses.
The application process is straightforward and designed to deliver grant funds directly to Oklahoma child care programs.
