Nearly 200 new child care slots are expected to become available in Crow Wing County, thanks to grants awarded to providers from American Rescue Plan Act funding. In January of 2022, the Crow Wing County Board approved grants totaling $800,000 for 25 organizations seeking to expand availability or to start a new childcare business. Trinity Children’s Center is extremely grateful to be one such recipient of grants awarded to providers from the American Rescue Plan Act.

On March 11, 2021 the American Rescue Plan Act was passed by the Biden Administration. This, in response to the ongoing pandemic, significantly enhanced the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act funding signed into law by President Trump on March 27, 2020. This legislation has and continues to offer small businesses, individuals, cities and counties across the country economic assistance through various channels with the intention of lessening the blow of the past two years on our communities.

This investment allows us to make Trinity Children’s Center safe, replace the worn-out equipment the children use, upgrade the carpet that has seen better days, and replace tables and chairs that will appropriately fit the size of the children. We look forward to continuing to work with families in Crow Wing County to provide a safe, loving, and nurturing environment with quality, trained staff.
