Salisbury child care center relieved to see more funding available
SALISBURY, Md.- More funding is making its way to child care providers and one local center said its much needed.
Dr. Amy Heger, owner of Night Watch Child Care Center, in Salisbury, is eager to see the funding was announced by Governor Larry Hogan.
She said the $50 million can be used for rent, PPE, mental health support, and more.
According to Dr. Heger, the last grant funding really took a lot of stress off centers financially, so she’s relieved to see more heading their way.
“This is not the first time we have had an economic crisis in our country, and I just always remember seeing these billion dollar companies getting bailouts from the government and it’s so nice that small businesses like child care centers are finally getting some aid and significant aid not a little $500 check, but we are talking $10,000 as a base,” Dr. Heger said.
Dr. Heger said she encourages centers to apply for the program as it was easy and not time consuming.
