Streamline ChildCare Assistance Process for Adolescent Parents
Child Care Program for adolescent parents in school was introduced in the MN Senate (Senate File 3672) on March 1, 2000. It will be heard in the Senate Children, Families and Learning Committee on Tuesday, March 7.
Now we need you to take action to make this bill become a reality and make a difference for school-aged parents and their children in Minnesota.
Many school-aged parents throughout Minnesota are found ineligible to receive childcare assistance, which often results in teens dropping out of school, and/or their young children receiving poor quality child care. This bill was developed by a coalition including MOAPPP, Minneapolis and St Paul Public schools and other adolescent parent service providers to help teen parents stay in school and receive quality child care.
