Service Industry Recovery Child Care ProgramChildcare Scholarships
In order to address the impacts of COVID-19 and to support Texas’ continued economic recovery, our partners at the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) approved funding to support a new child care program to help workers in TWC-specified service industries.
Workforce Solutions Capital Area currently has funding available for essential workers in the service industry to provide scholarships for child care services. Parents could qualify for 12 months of child care eligibility!
We encourage companies to promote this connection to help attract and retain talent since childcare is a primary barrier to employment.
We are excited to serve Essential Workers in the following categories:
- Arts, Entertainment, and Recreation (such as actors, amusement and recreation attendants, fitness trainers, musicians and singers, etc.)
- Accommodation and Food Service (such as hotel, motel, and resort desk clerks, waiters and waitresses, food preparation, chefs, etc.)
- Retail Trade (such as cashiers, customer service representative, retail sales workers, stock clerks, etc.)
This Hot Deal is promoted by Greater Austin Asian Chamber of Commerce.
