American Rescue Plan Act Survey


Pursuant to the Agreement between the State of California and Child Care Providers United – California (CCPU), the Governor and the Legislature directed a portion of the Federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) child care stabilization funding to child care providers in the form of benefits such as stipends or rate increases. The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) and the California Department of Education (CDE) are responsible for issuing the ARPA funding to child care providers and child care and development contractors, and for collecting data about how the funds were used, in order to comply with federal reporting requirements.

This survey has been revised to meet federal reporting requirements. Previously, CDE and CDSS had separate surveys; however, now all CDE and CDSS providers and contractors who have received or will be receiving ARPA-funded benefits must complete this survey, even if they have already submitted the previous version. Please provide responses based on individual provider- or site-level information (i.e., If you are a contractor serving multiple sites, one survey must be completed for each individual site or classroom).

Collected data will be protected from unauthorized disclosure and reported only to the federal government to track COVID-19 child care stabilization funding. If you are a child care center with multiple license numbers, please complete one survey for each license number.
