Funds to help affordable child care

$1.5 million would go toward providing more affordable child care in Pueblo. This money is funding one of the YWCA Pueblo childcare development projects. They are going to convert their old swimming pool into a daycare center. The YWCA saw a need in Pueblo for an affordable daycare service and this project would make it happen. It would also bring back their involvement in childcare which hasn't been there since the early 2000s. The Senate is expected to sign off on the Appropriations Bill by the end of the year. Either as an individual bill or a combined package.
