Wendy Clark's home day care in Shakopee received a $4,500 grant from Scott County. "That saved us," she said of the money that trickled down from the federal CARES Act.

Five of the 10 children at Wendy Clark's day care left when the pandemic started, and it took a while to regain clients. The cost of cleaning supplies climbed even as she needed them more than ever. Then her family got COVID-19.

"That saved us," she said of the money that trickled down from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.
