Schools & Child Care


Project Resilience Childcare Initiative

The Project Resilience Childcare Initiative (PRCI) is a multifaceted public private partnership to assist families with unforeseen childcare needs due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. PRCI will supplement and expand other subsidy programs provided by Ulster County and other private scholarships that are currently available to families at certain income levels. The first prong of PRCI will expand the childcare subsidies administered and funded by Ulster County Department of Social Services. The second prong of PRCI will provide scholarships for families to attend School-Age Children Programs throughout Ulster County.       

Childcare Subsidies

Currently there are up to 75 percent subsidies through Family of Woodstock and funded by Ulster County Department of Social Services available to families who make 200 percent of poverty level or less.
