Childcare in New Mexico is vital for a sound and growing economy.
Childcare is now in jeopardy as the governor has implemented a 10 percent (possibly cut to 8 percent) reduction in the reimbursement rate for families receiving childcare assistance.
As the Executive Director of a small center, I can attest that such cuts in provider rates will prompt more centers to turn-down Staid Aid families.
Our center loses about $30k in revenue due to the 7-8 State Aid children we take each year.
Centers cannot afford such losses and stay in business, yet the low-income families do not have money to make up the difference.
These are the families who can least afford an increase and are near or below the Federal Poverty Level.
I urge you to extend the emergency TANF funds.
