Pritzker Makes Pandemic Child Care Policy Permanent

Childcare is one of the biggest expenses and worries of families in this country. Governor Pritzker is making permanent a pandemic policy of $1 per month child care for families living in poverty. He's also capping child care costs for families with incomes up to 250 percent above the federal poverty level.

Reset examines how this could benefit families and the state’s post-pandemic economic recovery.
