STEP 1: Completing the (CCASP) Letter of Intent

Time to Complete 10 to 15 minutes

Welcome to Step 1 of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funded "Child Care Achieving Stabilization Grant Program (CCASP)" application process.

If you would like to be considered for funding you are required to submit a Letter of Intent as part of the application submission. This program has a rolling application process allowing for applications any time this summer and early fall, as long as funds are available. A public notice will be posted at https://www.nh-connections.org/covid-19/financial-resources/ 20 days before the application period closes.

Please note the submission and notification dates will be listed at https://www.nh-connections.org/covid-19/financial-resources/ under the ARPA tab in order to plan your application submission timing. If you are funded and sign the acceptance agreement, you will have the option to invoice in 2021 or 2022, based on your operational expenses and income needs.

By submitting this form, you are notifying NH DHHS that you intend to apply for the CCASP funds by submitting the various required forms/documentation (see more details at https://www.nh-connections.org/covid-19/financial-resources/under the ARPA tab as these are posted. If you elect not to apply, you do not need to notify DHHS.

This Letter of Intent is in no way a guarantee of funding. It will be used to assess eligibility and identify access/technical needs you may have. You will receive a Notification of CCASP Eligibility at the email address you provide within 5 business days of submission beginning on Tuesday, July 20. If the grant team has any questions, they will contact you through email.
