Funds for Child Care Providers Affected by Sandy

Assemblyman Chad Lupinacci today applauded the recent announcement by the Office of Children and Family Services(OCFS) regarding the successful acquisition of over $200 million in federal Social Services Block Grant funds to New York State. The funding will be used to rebuild, repair and renovate child care facilities impacted by Superstorm Sandy. Facilities eligible for the funding include both family-based and center-based child care programs, as well as mental hygiene and health care facilities impacted by the storm. The deadline for child care providers to apply for the funding is August 30, 2013.

“Superstorm Sandy had a devastating impact on communities across Long Island and many are still working to return to normalcy,” said Lupinacci. “This funding is critically needed to help the businesses that care for the youngest Long Islanders as they continue to rebuild and re-open. I strongly encourage any business or organization which believes they are eligible for the funding to apply as soon as possible.”

Child care providers looking to apply for funding can visit: Additional information on the funding can also be obtained by contacting the Child Care Resource and Referral agency at, or the local NYS Office of Children and Family Services Regional Office at Courthouse Corporate Center, 320 Carleton Avenue, Suite 4000, Central Islip, NY 11722 or by calling (631) 342-7100.
