On Tuesday, July 26, the Care That Works Coalition joined the Office of Early Childhood Education and Mayor Michelle Wu as she signed an executive order to increase the opportunity to raise funding for child care through Boston’s zoning code for large development projects.
Care That Works is excited to see our coalition’s research put into action, especially thanks to the Tufts University team that completed a report on the zoning code provision that was just strengthened. This funding is a win for working parents and child care workers in the City. We are inspired and committed to working with the City to explore how these flexible resources can be used to unleash the collective creativity of our communities to build the more equitable systems for caregiving we need.
