Childcare is Crucial to the Economy

In the last two years, Congress approved additional child care funding for the states. South Dakota had a $5.5 million increase, which gives the state an opportunity to enhance the quality and access of child care options for low-income families.

A recent study showed that the childcare industry has a $279 million impact on the state’s economy. Learn more about the economic impact of the child care industry on South Dakota.
