As part of ACY’s Birth to Three Strategic Initiative, we will be supporting the efforts being led by Maryland Family Network to expand Maryland’s Child Care Subsidies to ensure that low-income families have access to high quality child care.

HB 430/SB 379: Education– Child Care Subsidies — Mandatory Funding Levels: The federal Child Care Development Fund recommends that the Child Care Subsidy be set at 75th% of market rates, but in Maryland it is currently only 9th%. This legislation raises the rate to 30th% in 2020, 45th% in 2021, and 60th% in 2022. This will be a huge step in giving access to high quality child care for thousands more low income families across Maryland.
