The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has awarded a total of $175,000 to Workforce Solutions Capital Area and Workforce Solutions Rural Capital Area through Child Care Employment Connections Awards. This performance-based award recognizes local workforce development boards (Boards) for their work in connecting at-risk parents with sufficient employment.

The Child Care Employment Connections Awards recognize boards that were the most successful in helping make employment connections for unemployed parents whose children are receiving child care assistance.

“We’re honored to be recognized for this critical support to help Austin-Travis County parents,” said Tamara Atkinson, Chief Executive Officer at WSCA. “We help parents gain and keep employment, and also increase earning potential. Parents who receive child care assistance through us see an annual wage increase of over $6,300.”
