Early Years and Childcare Service COVID-19 Emergency Grant /Loan

Devon Early Years and Childcare Service has emergency funding to assist providers that are remaining open for children of critical workers and vulnerable children. The grants/loans will cover any deficit the provider will incur over the next 12 weeks or whilst awaiting financial support from the government. Devon Early Years and Childcare recognises that other Government funding will be available to offset some of the financial impact of the pandemic and as a local authority we cannot fund what the government is funding as this would be double funding. However recognising that there could be a delay in a provider receiving the government funding causing financial instability. Some of the funding maybe allocated as a repayable loan.
