These cities are offering free child care to parents and business property tax breaks

In Anchorage, Alaska, a sales tax on recreational marijuana is paying for child care and freeing up parents to enter the workforce. It’s just one example from around the country where the challenge of child care is an increasing detriment to workforce and economic development. In many cities, municipalities are getting directly involved with providing and financing the solutions.

Minot faces the same challenges, and a City of Minot Committee has recently been looking at the issue. Among the solutions that were offered were subsidizing staff training and facility development.
