Hochul: New web tool can link New Yorkers to child care

Parents will be able to check their eligibility for financial support for child care programs in New York under a new web tool unveiled Wednesday by Gov. Kathy Hochul's office.

At the same time, the Hochul administration re-established a statewide panel tasked with developing plans for the implementation of universal child care in the state.

"As a mother who put her career on pause due to a lack of affordable child care, I understand first-hand how important this lifeline is for families," Gov. Hochul said. "Complimenting the major investments made in funding child care, we are taking significant steps to improve the process of finding care, widen program eligibility, and support our workforce to ensure all New Yorkers have access to these critical resources."
