$40,000,000 in Supplemental Child Care Distribution in Texas to Support Communities and Families During COVID-19

The Texas Workforce Commission will distribute $40,000,000 of supplemental child care. These funds will allow local Workforce Development Boards to provide child care to the new COVID-19 Essential Workers, and, pending approval of a federal waiver from the Office of Child Care, make supplemental payments to child care programs to cover lost Parent Share of Cost (PSOC) payments. Essential Workers with children under the age of 13 may receive child care financial assistance to cover a portion or, in some cases, all of the costs for child care. In addition to resources for new COVID-19 Essential Workers, boards will also have funds to cover lost PSOC payments.
