Gov. Wolf's $25 Million State Child Care Tax Credit Will Support 221,000 Working Families in Pennsylvania

Governor Tom Wolf visited Kiddie Space Heights with Department of Human Services Acting Secretary Meg Snead to spotlight his $25 million child care tax credit program that will give back $180 to $630 to Pennsylvania's working families with young children. At least 221,000 families are expected to benefit from the program.

"Pennsylvania's hard-working families deserve the chance to succeed. That's why I created this child care tax credit program," said Gov. Wolf. "With some money back in their pockets, they can work or go back to school while ensuring their children are thriving at a quality child care center."

Gov. Wolf secured $25 million for the Child and Dependent Care Enhancement Program. Modeled after the federal child care tax credit program, this state-level child care tax credit program benefits working families with children in daycare who already qualify for the federal program. The state child care tax credit is for 30% of the federally approved expense.

Speakers Include:
Sudie Dinofrio - Exec. Dir. of the Child Development Council
Governor Tom Wolf
Secretary Snead
Samantha Danko - Parent from Nanticoke
Rep. Pashinski
