United Way introduces child care benefit pilot program

Thanks to a new innovative program from the United Way of Door County, recruiting new employees to your business could become a little easier. The organization announced on Friday the creation of its child care benefit pilot program. Door County employers are invited to participate in the nine-month pilot program by contributing to their employees' childcare expenses. Qualifying businesses would have those funds matched by the Women’s Fund of Door County. Child Care Community Coordinator Jessica Holland says the program hopes to address the child care needs in the community, especially for families with children under the age of five and a gross household income at or below 300 percent of the Federal Poverty Limit.

Child care providers must be licensed, certified, part of a school system, or meet alternative requirements developed by the United Way and the Women's Fund to be eligible. Holland says the first round of employer applications to participate in the pilot program will be evaluated by October 31st, 2022.
