Great Start Compensation Support Payment Program
The Great Start Compensation Support Payment Program was signed into law in May 2023, providing Minnesota with additional funds designed to support the child care industry and child care workers. Building off the Child Care Stabilization Grant Program, which ended in June 2023, this permanent program will issue monthly payments to eligible child care providers to fund increases in compensation and benefits for early educators.
