Free webinar for Employer-Sponsored Childcare Fund



Indianapolis, Indiana – A new Employer-Sponsored Childcare Fund is available in Indiana.

The agenda was outlined by Governor Holcomb in his 2023 Next Level Agenda. He anticipates that it will help Hoosier families and expand access to childcare.

According to, Indiana parents will typically have to pay $11,544 per child for newborn care at a daycare.

Managers will receive seed money from the $25 million program to increase the scope of employer-subsidized childcare coverage. A portion of the state’s leftover federal relief monies from the COVID-19 outbreak are used to finance it.

Employers in the state or nonprofits can obtain information about increasing access to childcare. A webinar is being hosted by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce and the Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning in Indiana. Tuesday, October 31 at 11 a.m. is when the free event will take place. It is necessary to register.

Officials will utilize the conference to go over “how funding can be used, the application process, and what the state hopes to accomplish,” according to the Family and Social Services website.

The Employer-Sponsored Childcare Fund application period ends on Wednesday, November 22, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. ET.

For a period of twelve months following the date of receipt, employers may deduct expenses from their payroll.
