Scott County Kids, a public-private partnership that helps families raise happy and healthy children, will be announcing an initiative to award approximately $250,000 in child care scholarships for Scott County families who are working, attending school or looking for work.

This federal money targets two groups: those with children ages birth to 24 months and those who need care in the late afternoons/evenings, at night or on weekends for infants, toddlers and preschoolers. The majority of the money comes from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act. Income guidelines do apply.
