Hochul launches initiative to establish child care centers on all SUNY campuses

On Friday, March 11, New York State Governor Kathy Hochul announced a new initiative to expand and create new child centers across all State University of New York (SUNY) campuses.

The initiative includes the distribution of $4.5 million in federal and state funds to support existing child care centers. A total of $10.8 million will also go towards establishing new care centers on SUNY campuses.


“Child care services are a critical part of our economic recovery, providing parents much-needed support as they pursue an education or join the workforce,” said Hochul, according to a press release. “This funding is an important step toward my administration’s goal of eliminating child care deserts across SUNY campuses statewide and adequately investing in our state’s students, faculty, and working parents.”

Currently, 18 more child care centers are needed to have one on each of the 64 SUNY campuses. During the 2020-21 academic year, SUNY schools served 1,200 student parents with their child care arrangements.
