Congresswoman Nikema Williams Highlights Report Showing Childcare Savings for Georgia Families

ATLANTA – Today, Congresswoman Nikema Williams (GA-05) highlighted a new report that shows the Build Back Better Act could save Georgia families thousands of dollars in childcare costs annually. The report was prepared by the House Education and Labor Committee.     

The Committee’s report found that the typical Georgia family of four with one infant in full-time center-based childcare would save $6,510 annually. The typical Georgia family of four with one infant and one child in full-time center-based childcare would save $13,480 annually.

“The Build Back Better Act is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build the physical and human infrastructure Georgia parents need to return to work and provide their children with high-quality care,” said Congresswoman Williams. “I am proud to support the Build Back Better Act because the infrastructure and resources needed to care for families should be available to everyone, no matter your ZIP Code and no matter your bank account.” 

Under the Build Back Better Act, no family would pay more than 7 percent of their income on childcare. Families making 100 percent of the State Median Income or less – which is $80,209 for a family of four in Georgia – would pay no more than 2 percent of their income on childcare, regardless of the number of children they have in childcare.
