Local representative advocates for $20 million to address child care shortage in Greater Minnesota
By some estimates there are more than 40,000 spaces needed to meet the demand for child care in Greater Minnesota. Creating them would benefit not only the families involved, but also their communities by shrinking workforce shortages and boosting local economies.
The House Capital Investment Division heard a bill on Tuesday meant to help address the child care shortage across the state by starting a grant program to fund the creation of more child care facilities in Greater Minnesota.
Sponsored by Rep. Jeff Brand (DFL-St. Peter), HF3497 seeks $20 million for the program – $10 million would come through bonding and $10 million would come from the General Fund. Grants could not exceed $500,000 for a single project or $2 million in two years to an applicant for one or more projects in the same city or county.
