U.S. Senator Joni Ernst discussed on Insiders last week that the state is getting $32 million to help child care providers. It is still to be determined how the state will divide up the money to expand child care access, especially in places where it’s difficult to find nearby. A lot of families know that finding affordable child care is a challenge, and the COVID-19 outbreak has made it even more challenging.
A new national poll by Save the Children Action Network found 87% of voters support providing enough federal assistance during the COVID-19 outbreak to make sure child care providers can pay their bills.
