Thousands of kids, hundreds of centers hurt by cuts in state child care funding, advocates say

To make up for an $86 million shortfall, the state implemented cost containment measures in the child care assistance program that effected only low-income kids. Six months after the cuts took effect, approximately 13,674 low-income children have been cut from the program, according to data provided by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services.
