During the COVID-19 emergency, Arizona remains focused on keeping children safe and supporting their families and providers. The Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) is committed to working closely with families and child care providers across the state to get them the help they need.

To ensure Arizona’s first responders, critical healthcare workers, essential government operations, grocery store and food bank workers, and licensed/certified child care workers have access to the resources they need to continue providing essential frontline services while combating COVID-19, DES is partnering with contracted child care providers to offer child care through the Essential Workers Child Care Relief Scholarship Program.
