*School Age Care FUNDING & SUPPORT - Please join us for a very special Afterschool Conversations at 11am on Wednesday, February 3 as we welcome Gary Romano, CEO of Civitas Strategies, to review the most up-to-date guidance surrounding new funding opportunities, including the latest round of PPP loans, and steps to ensure that you are ready to apply. Gary has been generously sharing resources and his expertise with child care programs throughout New Jersey, and we are delighted to have him share this valuable information in person with our school age network. This support was funded by the Maher Charitable Foundation and Marilyn Taub Foundation to help child care providers navigate the pandemic.
