Step Up to T.E.A.C.H. and Step Up to WAGE$
Step Up to T.E.A.C.H. and Step Up to WAGE$ demonstration programs are a new opportunity for states that have an interest in supporting the workforce through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to implement a short-to-long term early childhood workforce stabilization strategy.
Bring Step Up to T.E.A.C.H. to Your State
An “off-the-shelf” program to immediately turn ARPA funds into educational scholarships for early care professionals and those who perform specialized functions in the early care system.
Bring Step Up to WAGE$ to Your State
An “off-the-shelf” program to immediately turn ARPA funds into education-based salary supplements into the hands of deserving early educators.

Early Childhood® college scholarships and Child Care WAGE$® education-based salary supplements for early educators working with young children in child care settings across the nation.
