The Jeannette Watson Wage Supplement Project, funded by the City of Austin, Travis County, and Workforce Solutions Capital Area Workforce Board, is a salary supplement program that is being administered by Workforce Solutions Child Care Services.
The salary supplement is intended as a means of identifying professionals who have furthered their education in Early Childhood Education and work with children from low-income families.
This is an effort towards helping our valuable Early Childhood teachers and directors continue to work in a field where wages are not commensurate with other skilled positions. All awards are based on experience in childcare and education level obtained. Award levels will be determined after applications are submitted. Supplements will be awarded based on available funding. Previous awards do not guarantee future payments.
