The Latest News for Georgia's Family Child Care Providers


Announcement from DECAL! See their news release below.


In February, Governor Brian Kemp and Commissioner Amy M. Jacobs announced plans for $1,000 supplemental payments to all eligible early learning professionals and staff in Georgia.

Now known as POWER, for Providing Our Workforce Essential Recognition, these payments are a small yet significant way to recognize the dedication and hard work shown during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The POWER application is now open in DECAL KOALA and will be available until 6:00 PM on June 11, 2021. Eligible providers must submit an application on behalf of all eligible staff members.

We encourage eligible providers to log in early and get started on the application soon.

If you need assistance, email us at and we’ll be happy to help.

POWER is funded through the federal Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

Thank you for your support of quality early childhood education here in Georgia throughout the year, but especially during this public health emergency. The dedication and passion of the workforce for children and their families is unprecedented.
