New grant allows roughly 300 families in Suffolk County to pay less for child care
Some struggling, working families in Suffolk County will soon be paying less for child care.
A new grant will allow about 300 Suffolk families to contribute about 10 percent less to their child care costs.
Officials say the average family will save about $583 a year.
Only working families who are at or slightly above the poverty level are eligible.
The change will go into effect in March.
