Gov. Ned Lamont says families in Connecticut who make less than $60,000 a year will qualify for free day care for the next six months.
The fee will be covered by money from the federal government’s American Rescue coronavirus relief bill.
The governor says he is doing everything he can to make sure people can get back to work.
“Childcare, schools being open, are a big piece of what that is,” Lamont says.
Lamont also announced that the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, also known as food stamp, will be increased for more than 100,000 families.
