Restrictions may limit child care
New CAPS program rules could allow access to only certain groups

Thousands of Georgia children, many of whom may live in Hall County, could be turned away from child care funding because of restrictions that began in February. The restrictions in the Childcare and Parent Services program, which helps low-income families afford child care, will affect new applicants, though there are exceptions made for some. These new restrictions apply in counties that used all their funding in the past fiscal year, including Hall County, where 30 child care programs are certified to serve children receiving CAPS funding.
