ARPA Stabilization Grant Spending Report Available

Child care providers who applied for and received an American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Stabilization Grant are required to report on the use of funds and child care capacity as a condition of receiving funds. Any grant recipient that wishes to begin reporting can access the Spending Report and begin to enter their spending amounts.


Grant reporting will be completed in the Professional Development (PD) Registry. Directors, owners, administrators and/or designated fiscal staff members can now access the reporting tool for their program under the Keystone STARS/Grants tab in their organization’s profile.

Recipients will be able to log in and out of the Spending Report to update their spending amounts, but they will not be able to finalize and submit their Spending Report until eight months after the Early Learning Resource Center (ELRC) submitted their grant for payment.

Providers are encouraged to preview the Spending Report to prepare for the simplified reporting requirements.

Use this step-by-step tip sheet on how to access and complete the Spending Report. Grant recipients should contact to problem solve issues with accessing their Spending Report.
