Statement Regarding Governor’s Proposed Middle Class Family Child Care Tax Credit

Statement Regarding Governor’s Proposed Middle Class Family Child Care Tax Credit

Child Care Council CEO Barbara-Ann Mattle issued the following statement today (Jan. 19) in support of Governor Cuomo’s proposed middle class family child care tax credit proposal:

“Too many families here in Monroe, Livingston and Wayne counties struggle to gain access to affordable child care. Some parents are forced to leave their jobs because they cannot afford the high cost of care. Unstable child care arrangements also place a heavy burden on employees and on employers, due to increased absenteeism and decreased productivity.

“Thankfully, Governor Andrew Cuomo is committed to making child care more stable and more accessible for families across the state. As the local nonprofit agency working to improve child care access and quality, Child Care Council Inc. applauds Governor Cuomo for his budget proposal to increase the child care tax credit for middle class families. This measure will make a dramatic difference in the lives of thousands of children and families, by making child care more affordable and more accessible.

“Child Care Council urges the state Legislature to approve this proposal, which will result in some families seeing their child care tax credit double.”
