Idaho Department of Health and Welfare Announces Community Program Grant Partners

BOISE – Funding allocated to reach children impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic is fully distributed earlier than anticipated. No new applications for the Idaho Community Program grants will be accepted.


The Department of Health and Welfare (DHW) has supported more than 80 community partners through multiple rounds of Community Program funding. The grants were a part of the federal government’s American Rescue Plan Act for Child Care Development Fund. They were allocated to expand access to programming, enhance behavioral health supports, and help bring students back up to speed after missed learning opportunities.

“We are excited to be able to fund such a diverse group of organizations for this final year,” said Idaho Child Care Program Manager Ericka Rupp. “We had anticipated funding cycles through 2023, but due to demand reached our funding threshold earlier than expected.”
