Juneau Assembly may approve $1M for child care providers
The Juneau Assembly may approve more than $1 million in funds to assist licensed child care providers whose businesses have been hurt by the coronavirus.
KTOO-FM reported the assembly plans to vote on an emergency measure during a special meeting on Thursday.
The vote would commit federal relief funds for distribution to child care providers beginning in June.
The program would initially give licensed providers up to $500 per child each month, about half of what they would normally receive in tuition if they were at capacity.
The subsidy would decrease to $250 per full-time enrolled child in September.
