The G3Wire- July 8, 2022

This week, Governor Sisolak launched the Nevada Child Care Fund, aimed at expanding access and lowering the cost of child care. In June, the Interim Finance Committee approved $50 million to expand funding for the State’s current child care program, the Child Care and Development Program. The launch of the Nevada Child Care Fund will lower the amount paid out of pocket for eligible families, as well as expand the income eligibility threshold for the child care assistance program.

From the press release:

“Nevada’s working families need support. This funding will help these families increase their household income, stay in their homes, support their families and save for the future,” said Governor Sisolak. “Quality, affordable childcare is critical for the success of our kids, our families and will support our local businesses and economy by creating a more stable workforce.”
