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.
