WI Requests Funding for Child Care

Wisconsin could get 229-million dollars to help fund more than 319-thousand children in daycares. 

The funding is part of an emergency request to Congress by the Biden Administration after pandemic daycare funding ended.  Biden is proposing 16-billion-dollars to help daycares pay staff and keep costs lower for parents.  80-percent of daycare centers in the U-S received the pandemic funding, which ended September 30th.  The Wisconsin Legislature rejected a special session called by Governor Tony Evers in September.  After that, Evers announced 170-million dollars in emergency funding to help lower childcare costs.
