Collier CARES Childcare assistance- How do I qualify and apply for this grant?
Collier County’s workforce has been impacted by closures of schools, childcare facilities and other programs. In order to return our workforce safely, a childcare assistance program will be implemented. Households can apply for childcare assistance waivers, provided their income has been affected by State Executive Order, and childcare is a necessary expense to return to work.
What if I represent a childcare facility?

All licensed daycare facilities and Collier County Parks & Recreation programs are eligible for use of the waiver and grant assistance program.
