Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning

Since 2021, DECAL has paid out three installments of POWER payments (Providing Our Workforce Essential Recognition) to the tune of close to $115-million from the American Rescue Plan Act. That’s 115,000 individual payments of $1,000 to early learning professionals here in Georgia.  Now we are repurposing POWER payments and making some changes to DECAL Scholars to increase access to degrees and credentials for those working in child care.  Joining us to talk about POWER and DECAL Scholars is Abby Mozo, Professional Learning Operations Analyst here at DECAL, and Melissa Ross from Care Solutions.
