Faribault County Register: Wells EDA $10K grant going towards child care shortage

EXCERPT: “Progress for the future generations. The city of Wells has been working diligently on their plans to bring in more day care opportunities to the area after a shortfall of 108 child care slots was recently addressed earlier in February. Across the 20-county region Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation serves, the need for child care is over 8,600 additional day care slots. Because of that childcare shortage, the Wells Economic Development Authority got word in February that they were one of five communities in the region to receive a $10,000 grant from SMIF, entitled ‘Communities Addressing the Child Care Shortage.’ ‘Part of my job as the administrative associate for the City of Wells is working with the EDA and HRA on projects like this,’ says Tiffany Schrader, administrative associate for the city of Wells.” FULLSTORY: http://bit.ly/2Kpj49V
