Minnesotans could save up to $1,800 per month per child
Military families can receive help with child care costs of up to $1,800 per child under a new Department of Defense initiative touted by Gov. Tim Walz at a child care center Monday.
The program, which is available on a sliding fee scale, expands child care options through the fee assistance program, known as Military Child Care in Your Neighborhood-PLUS for families. The assistance is offered to families without child care on the site of their military assignment. The assistance is also available to those who are deployed but have family in Minnesota.
Unlike some other states, Minnesota has no military bases, which generally have their own on-site care.
