The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed child care services in Minnesota and across the nation. To help providers withstand the financial burden caused by the pandemic, Minnesota created the Peacetime Emergency Child Care Grant program (PECC) and distributed the first round of funds in April 2020. To understand providers’ experiences with and perceptions of the PECC program, an online survey was shared with applicants. A total of 1,898 center-based and family child care applicants (36 percent) completed the survey between July 31, 2020 and September 9, 2020. Among the respondents, 58 percent applied for and received the grant (PECC Grant recipients) and 42 percent applied but did not receive the grant (nonrecipients). This fact sheet presents initial findings from the survey on program closures and factors related to COVID-19. (author abstract)
