  • Support for Families and Children

    When families are working and kids are learning, Indiana’s future is brighter. The past year has made that difficult. Many families are out of work, and children have missed opportunities to engage in high-quality early childhood education or out-of-school learning. Indiana's new Build, Learn, Grow program can help.

    Build, Learn, Grow
    initiatives will deliver economic support to families, helping those who have lost jobs find employment and make high-quality early learning and education opportunities for children ages 0-12 more convenient and accessible.

Indiana's Build, Learn, Grow program provides two-generational support to families — empowering parents and caregivers in seeking employment while helping children access early care and education programs where they can prepare for their futures.

  • Waived CCDF Co-Pays

    To provide temporary financial relief to Indiana families, the state will waive CCDF co-pays through the end of October 2021 for families utilizing CCDF vouchers.

    Build, Learn, Grow Scholarship Fund

    Families that work in essential businesses can receive scholarships covering up to 80% of their child care costs — including summer programming and camps — for children age 0-12.

  • Workforce Development Support

    The state’s plan also helps with the child care needs of Hoosiers seeking education and training for high-demand jobs. Ivy Tech Community College will provide streamlined and prioritized access to CCDF assistance for families who meet the income requirements of being at or below 127% of the Federal Poverty Limit, and the state will help provide child care supports for participants in innovative workforce preparation programs that aim to connect displaced Hoosiers with high-demand jobs.
