PPP 2.0: Funding Guide for Child Cares

A new relief bill will revive the PPP, which helps small businesses maintain payroll with forgivable loans. We built a guide to give you the rundown on how to get it.

Starting this week, small businesses can apply for new funding through the Paycheck Protection Program program. Congress revived the lending program with a relief bill signed into law on Dec. 27. The bill allocates $284.5 billion in forgivable coronavirus relief loans, including $137 billion for “second-draw” loans, to small businesses hard hit by the pandemic shutdowns.

The guide highlights key parts of PPP 2.0, including eligibility requirements, when to apply, what forms to use, and what can be forgiven. You can get up to $2 million in forgivable funds with PPP 2.0.

For members only, we're building high-quality resources like the 
PPP 2.0 Guide for Child Cares and a comprehensive list on Funding Available for California Child Cares and how to apply. Not a member? Join here.

Membership is only $215- this guide can get you thousands in forgivable funding.

Timing for Child Care Vaccinations

Child cares are officially in Tier 1 of Phase 1b of California's vaccination schedule. For most counties, that's the next group to be vaccinated, so it will be open to child care workers soon.

Note that every county is going at different speeds, and it's best to check in with your 
local public health department and primary care physician on vaccine availability.

We've worked tirelessly to ensure child care workers are prioritized, and your voice has been critical in this effort. With over 2,700 signatures from providers, many letters, and tons of phone calls, policymakers heard our needs to be prioritized and have acted. You made this happen. Thank you.
