The Texas Workforce Commission recently announced they will be providing aid to an industry hit perhaps harder than any other by COVID-19.

TWC is providing extra help to the service industry by providing 12 months of free child care to low-income parents who are employed in the service industry.

The new Service Industry Recovery program will use federal COVID-relief funds to provide an extra focus on workers in the service industry. 

“TWC’s child care assistance program provides an important subsidy many Texas families use to enter the workforce,” Bryan Daniel, TWC Chairman said. “This Service Industry Recovery program provides additional funding to ensure service industry employers maintain access to quality child care as they play an important role in the state’s economic success.”
