February 28, 2022 Group Watch: Childcare Workers Get Bonuses

More than 10,000 Alabama childcare workers are receiving bonuses totaling $12.6 million. These bonuses come after the first round of Child Care Workforce Stabilization grants from the Alabama Department of Human Resources (DHR). The second round will run from February 28 through March 18. The DHR awarded grants to 1,278 child care providers who applied in December 2021 and January 2022. These grants are composed of bonuses that total $1,500 for full-time employees and $750 for part-time employees. According to DHR Commissioner Nancy Buckner, “These bonuses will help recruit much-needed reinforcements and reward current employees for their dedicated service to the children and families of Alabama.” Eligible employees may receive up to eight quarterly bonuses before the two-year grant period ends in September 2023. Funding for the grants comes from the American Rescue Plan Act.
