Urgent: Child Care Subsidy Budget Hearing
Posted Monday, March 2, 2015 by Shelly Nye
The Child Care Subsidy Budget (Budget 3267) is scheduled to be heard by the Senate Committee on Finance and Assembly Committee on Ways and Means on Thursday, March 5, 2015 8:00 AM. The Child Care Assistance and Development Program (CCDP) provides assistance to Nevada's low-income families in paying for their child care needs. These services assist people to become and remain self-sufficient, thereby reducing long-term dependency and the associated expenditures to public assistance programs.
