Through the Child Care Stabilization Grant, DCYF has distributed over $327 million to 5,883 providers helping them stay open during the COVID-19 pandemic to care for children and ensure working families have access to high-quality child care.
DCYF’s Office of Innovation, Alignment, and Accountability published the data dashboard to report on where in the state the grant funds have been distributed. The dashboard consists of interactive graphs and maps that allow the user to filter by type of provider and multiple geographic areas, including county, legislative district, school district, and zip code. The development of this dashboard has been a collaboration between DCYF’s Early Learning Division, the Office of Innovation, Alignment, and Accountability, and Washington STEM, a statewide education nonprofit organization.
The Child Care Stabilization Grant dashboard is being added to the suite of DCYF Early Learning dashboards, along with the Child Care Need and Supply Data, Child Care Stabilization Zip Code Factors, and Early Achievers Data dashboards.
The Office of Innovation, Alignment, and Accountability supports DCYF to make evidence-informed decisions, continuously learn and improve, and successfully enact system reform.
