Removing Child Care As A Barrier To Women’s Economic Self-Sufficiency – CORE Grant

This program works to remove the barrier of accessing affordable, quality child care to obtain/maintain work or training and decrease the work force gap while increasing women’s economic security for female-head of households based on poverty guidelines under 200%. This program provides children with a quality, nurturing early childhood environment that embraces and promotes all diversities working and learning together.
This Scholarship will allow ALL women-headed households to receive the equal value of scholarships as those households receiving Child Care Assistance from the state. The program will also work to alleviate some stress for single-parent mothers by offering one two-hour parent meeting with a light snack, a speaker, and the opportunity to have parents connect.
