New Mexico leads the nation as childcare is made free for most families  


Governor Michelle Lujan-Grisham expands free child care to over 30,000 families, pledges $10 million to expand child care supply, and announces stipend program for early childhood workers seeking advanced degrees

ALBUQUERQUE – Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham on Thursday announced family-focused initiatives eliminating costs for child care for most New Mexico families, increase capacity for child care services in areas lacking access, and supporting early childhood professionals. This dramatic expansion of cost-free services builds on the administration’s prior work to deliver affordable child care to more New Mexico families, supporting tens of thousands more families across the state by previously doubling family eligibility for the state’s Child Care Assistance Program.
