As we enter the month of July, I again want to spread the word about an important resource to ensure that no child goes hungry this summer. Free summer meals for kids and teens 18 years of age and under are available at sites across Connecticut. End Hunger Connecticut has created an interactive map that shows every location in the state where free summer meals are offered.
I have several announcements to share with you this week!
On Monday, I attended a forum at Silva's Youth of Today Childcare Learning Center in East Hartford put on by Parent Power and the CT Early Childhood Alliance to discuss the changes for the Care4Kids program.
I hope everyone is enjoying the start of the summer!
The Office of Early Childhood (OEC) announced today that it has found a way to ensure families currently enrolled in the Care4Kids program continue to receive the child care subsidy as long as they meet the current income eligibility requirement.
