Fed Money Helps Goldendale Child Care Effort

With last week’s announcement by Southwest Washington Congresswoman Jamie Herrera-Beutler that over $583,000 has been included in a federal appropriations bill to help develop a child care center in Goldendale, local officials backing the project have been energized.  Washington Gorge Action Programs executive director Leslie Naramore says the federal dollars are a good start toward generating the estimated $2 million needed to construct the center.  Naramore says they are seeking grants from other federal, state, and private sources.  A recent study done by the Klickitat County Childcare Committee showed there are no licensed care providers for infants and toddlers in Goldendale, and just one Head Start program for pre-schoolers.
