Program to be launched to help essential businesses and child care needs

It is no secret that unemployment rates are up, and businesses are struggling to find workers, as well as funds to offer a fair wage. The Wisconsin Department of Children and Families has opened applications for essential businesses to help remedy this with a grant program called “PartnerUp!”. This program incentivises businesses to partner with child care programs through a statewide grant of $10 million. The goals of this program are to provide steady childcare for families in the community, while also helping businesses find the funds to keep their staffing by being able to offer more benefits. The Supporting Families Together Association has partnered with the nine Child Care Resource & Referral Agencies within Wisconsin. From there the CCR&Rs will reach out to interested businesses and child care providers in their regions.
