NEWS NEWS: Franklin County pledges $11 million to childcare

12/13/2023

From NBC 4 WCMH:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — More than $11 million is headed to childcare facilities and families for year two of the Franklin County RISE program, an initiative making child care and early education experiences more accessible to all. 

Franklin County Commissioner Erica Crawley said the initiative is something the community wanted and needed. 

“We know that childcare is expensive,” Crawley said. “Families make a little bit too much money to qualify for publicly funded health care, but not enough to really pay out of pocket. We found the families that were having to make hard decisions about keeping doors open, lights on, roof, I mean, water running and food on the table. And nobody should have to make those hard decisions for their families just to put their children in childcare so they can go to work.”
