This is an assessment of need and not a guarantee of a service that will be provided.
The Goal: Ensure working parents serving in critical roles, defined below, who are impacted by school closures continue to have access to childcare. For those parents with children 12 years old and younger, or a child with special needs up to age 19, DHS will ensure access to childcare located at a school-based or alternative site.
ELIGIBILITY: Parents offered this service will be limited to a two-parent household who both work, or single-parent who works, in the following fields: – All hospital staff; – All healthcare providers in private practice and all direct care staff; – Staff who provide critical government infrastructure: examples include: social services, child protection services, public health officials, tax collection, corrections and other public safety; – Emergency responders; – Food service workers, including grocery store staff and limited restaurant staff to include supporting take-away options; and – Others as approved by the Director of Human Services. If this applies to your current situation, please respond with your information including how many of your children would need child care on an emergency basis to: childcareinfo@marioncountyiowa.gov
