Media: With funding challenges looming, Mass. child care could be in jeopardy

A story by the Boston Globe about the likely impact that the end of pandemic-era grants will have on early education programs reported on key findings from “Initial Findings on Utilization, Employment, and Financial Assistance,” a research policy brief by the UMass Boston Early Ed Cost and Usage Simulator Project (CUSP).

“Expanding funding for child care would lead to increases in the number of employed parents and the hours they work” and the “percentage of infant and toddler mothers employed in the state would rise from 70.5 percent to 74 percent,” the Globe wrote.

“With funding challenges looming, Mass. child care could be in jeopardy” is available at the Boston Globe.
