Emergency Child Care
Child care is an essential service to communities. In response to COVID-19 and the governor’s Executive Orders 20-19, 20-08 and 20-12, the Office of Child Care (OCC) created a process for licensed child care providers, public schools, and employers or other entities to launch new, Emergency Child Care Facilities.
We are still accepting applications to operate Emergency Child Care. The Early Learning Division is not currently accepting applications for non-licensed, temporary Emergency Child Care (“pop-up”) facilities unless they can demonstrate a community need. If you have any questions regarding applications, please email OCC.CustomerService@state.or.us.
