Sacramento - AB 435 authored, by Assemblymember Tony Thurmond (D-Richmond), authorizes Contra Costa, Sonoma, Alameda, and Marin counties to develop and implement a child care subsidy pilot. The bill was signed by the Governor today.
“Living in a high cost area has made it difficult for our families to qualify for affordable child care,” said Thurmond. “Childcare subsidy pilots have proven to work in high-cost areas where families are ineligible for subsidized childcare. This bill helps families access child care where the high cost of living is a major barrier.”
