Working families benefit from ARRA funds

tennesseedepartmentofhumanservicesNASHVILLE, Tenn. – More than 4,000 children are now enrolled in the Child Care Recovery Scholarship program.  This time-limited, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act program is helping thousands of families across the state make ends meet by reducing their weekly child care bills.

“This Recovery Act program is already helping provide safe, quality child care to thousands of Tennessee children,” said Governor Phil Bredesen. “Our goal has been to reach as many children as possible and encourage families to utilize all the benefits available to them under this program.  We encourage any working family that may benefit to talk with their licensed child care provider or area Boys & Girls club for information.”

The $42 million program, designed by the Tennessee Department of Human Services, is opened to all licensed child care providers and Boy’s and Girl’s Clubs across the state.  The majority of enrollments are in Shelby County, with more than 900 children on the program, followed by Davidson County with 450 children.  There are 300 children enrolled in Knox County and 240 in Chattanooga.
