MSU research may help Montana families better afford child care

June 7, 2017View for printing

Montana State University economist George Haynes has completed an in-depth study comparing the costs of child care in every county in the state. The study will potentially help lower income Montana families afford child care.

Haynes, professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics and Economics in MSU's College of Agriculture and an economics specialist with MSU Extension, was commissioned by the Montana Department of Health and Human Services Early Childhood Services Bureau to develop a survey with the goal of helping the bureau determine subsidy rates for its Best Beginning scholarships. The scholarship program helps working families whose income is at or below 150 percent of federal poverty guidelines pay for child care.
