Stimulus targets struggling families

Washington Post, April 10, 2009
Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC, will receive more than $73 million in federal stimulus funds to expand and improve child-care and immunization programs for low-income families, the Obama administration announced. The money is part of a two-year, $2 billion initiative passed by Congress in February that gives states more money to help low-income families struggling with rising child-care costs.
