Bowser Offers Grants to Curb D.C. Childcare Crisis

Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) may have found a solution to the District’s severe shortage of licensed child-care providers. Infant care in the District reached a crisis point late last year when projections showed 7,600 licensed child care slots for more than 22,000 children. The solution would offer $15 million to address the shortage through competitive grants.
