Children’s Action Alliance — Good News! Governor Expands Child Care To More Essential Workers

Governor Ducey announced (May 14) that the child care centers serving essential workers, known as Arizona Enrichment Centers, will expand to offer prioritized child care to grocery store and food bank employees. Importantly, the Arizona Enrichment Centers offer scholarships to qualified low-income families. CAA has worked tirelessly with early childhood and child care stakeholders to advocate for an expanded definition of essential workers. This is a win for working Arizonans who are on the front lines; putting themselves at risk. Thank you Governor Ducey for your efforts to keep children safe while their parents work to help protect public health during the COVID-19 crisis.
