Heinz Endowments Announces Child Care Initiative

Thursday, May 21, 2020

The Heinz Endowments has announced a new public-private partnership with major funding to help strengthen the region’s child care sector in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. 

The Endowments has awarded a grant of $200,000 to child advocacy organization, Trying Together, to underwrite critically-needed grants to child care providers affected by the pandemic, and fund a new digital platform that provides families real-time information about child care centers.

This combines with funding of $300,000 from the multi-foundation-supported Emergency Action Fund -- created with contributions from Hillman Family Foundations, the Richard King Mellon Foundation, The Pittsburgh Foundation, and the Endowments -- to help address urgent needs resulting from the COVID-19 crisis.
