Baldwin Announces Funding for WI Child Care

Today, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) announced that Wisconsin will receive nearly $122 million for child care, an over $8 million increase above last year.

“When I travel across Wisconsin, I hear from communities big and small about the impact of the child care crisis – as families struggle to afford care, businesses struggle to find workers, and providers struggle to pay their hardworking staff and keep their doors open,” said Senator Baldwin. “While there’s more work left to do, I’m proud to cut costs for working families, better ensure all kids are getting a strong start, and get more parents back to work. Investing in child care is not only an investment in our children’s future, it’s an investment in our Made in Wisconsin economy.”

For Fiscal Year 2024, Wisconsin will receive $121.9 million through the CCDBG, an increase of $8 million compared to Fiscal Year 2023. The CCDBG is a grant given to the states and territories by the federal government.
