State-Subsidized Child Care Funds Dry Up


The money has run out.

 

State officials say they are out of funding to pay for state-subsidized child care between now and the end of the fiscal year on June 30th.

 

The inability to reimburse providers means the cost of child care will now fall to low-income families or to the providers themselves, many of which are small, in-home day care centers.

 

As many as 85-thousand low-income families depend on the state subsidies to help them pay for child care while a parent is at work.

 

Lawmakers could consider an emergency funding measure to fill in the gap between now and the start of the new budget year.
