The Broome County Department of Social Services will be able to expand the availability of childcare to more residents thanks to a one-time grant.



The DSS will be able to help low income families participate in educational programs, expand temporary assistance for families not receiving benefits, include older children in the household count and expand allowances for child or parent illness.

Broome was one of several counties awarded an Expansion of Child Care Assistance Program Grant for 2020-2021.

In addition, officials announce the Broome County Day Care unit has moved to the DSS building at 36 to 42 Main Street, across from Binghamton High School.  The hours of availability have not changed.
