Following our recent webcast with Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), ZERO TO THREE has compiled answers to the most frequently asked questions. While many questions cannot be fully answered until the administering federal agencies provide guidance to states and programs on implementation, we will continue to update this resource as more information becomes available. Following each answer below, we have included available resources from federal administering agencies, including early guidance on the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES), as well as resources from other organizations. ZERO TO THREE’s summary of these measures and other materials on the COVID-19 crisis may be found at www.zerotothree.org/covidpolicy.
