The American Rescue Plan Act Child Care Stabilization

As the American Rescue Plan Act Child Care Stabilization funds for child care providers start to roll out, it is important to know that these funds can be used to support mental health and social and emotional services for staff and children in care. Here is a Social and Emotional Mental Health Supports and Services Menu / Apoyos y Servicios Sociales y Emocionales de Salud Mental para la Primera Infancia that lists resources currently available in New York state. This menu has six different categories of services: Mental Health Consultation, Coaching, Reflective Supervision, Early Childhood Technical Assistance, Training and Other. Each service includes a short description along with contact information and web addresses for further information. If you choose to use the Stabilization grant to pay for these mental health or social and emotional services, you will need to reach out to the contact person listed for more information and to arrange the service for your program.

Please note that this menu is not all inclusive and will be updated as new information and resources become available. If your agency provides mental health or social and emotional services and would like to be listed in this menu, please fill out the Google Form here.
