These payments are not loans; they are full grants paid directly to the childcare provider and no repayment is required. View the flier.

  1. Have lived within the City of Irving on or before March 1, 2020.
  2. Have been or will be required to return to work at place of employment. Working for an employer while based at home is not eligible.
