This week, the Interim Finance Committee met and approved a number of work programs and projects aimed at helping Nevadans continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, including a $30 million grant program for childcare providers for projects that will immediately expand the provider’s ability to serve more Nevada families. The $30 million approved is one part of Governor Sisolak’s $160 million childcare plan, which will also address affordability for families and workforce needs in the child care sector.
