NOTE: Due to the popularity of the this initiative, applications to request vouchers are now closed

Maryland Family Network, the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE), and the Council for Professional Recognition partnered to provide thousands of Maryland's early childhood educators, including high school students enrolled in approved CTE programs, with financial support to help them earn the Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential.

Due to the popularity of this initiative, the process to request vouchers for resource materials and application fees has been closed.

Individuals who have received vouchers are able to redeem these on a first come first serve basis until funds are fully depleted. If funds are fully depleted before an individual is able to use the issued voucher, these individuals will be prioritized if the program is reopened in the future.
