New York urged to increase funding for child care

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A coalition of parents, teachers, providers and faith leaders is asking state leaders in Albany to increase funds for child care assistance.
  
The group is planning a rally Monday to call on lawmakers to set aside more money to help working parents pay for care.
  
Supporters say the state can do more to ensure parents don't have to decide between earning a living and ensuring proper care for their children.
  
New York has among the highest child care costs in the nation, despite millions of dollars in state tax credits and direct funding. Many families who qualify for assistance can't get it because of high demand.
