The federal stimulus plan is providing $51 million to Arizona for child care and $4 million to purchase vaccines to immunize individuals in underserved families, U.S. Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva announced Thursday.
The Pascua Yaqui Tribe will get $215,000 for child care and the Tohono O’odham Nation will receive $461,000 for child care. The money will provide vouchers to needy working families so they can get child care and continue to be employed.
