Parents in Westchester County are about to get some relief when it comes to paying for child care thanks to a new scholarship program.
Westchester County Executive George Latimer recently announced the Westchester Works Scholarship, which is specifically aimed to broaden eligibility.
"This is for families who have not previously qualified for child care financial assistance," says Latimer.
Working parents that have a gross annual income of $60,000 to $100,000 are now eligible.
"These scholarships will go to parents' important jobs that we need and value in Westchester," says Kathy Halas, executive director of the Child Care Council of Westchester.
Working parent Diana Lemon says she makes too much money but still needs the assistance of a single mother so this program will help.
Applications are currently being accepted.
