Community Public Input Session April 11, 3-4 pm

Calling all community members. Do you have ideas about improving access to child care in Buncombe County? We want to hear from you. Buncombe County is facing a shortage of child care and is working to expand access to high quality, affordable child care and pre-k.

Buncombe County is launching a new Early Childhood Fund and plans to invest $3.6 million annually to improve outcomes for young children. Grants made through the fund will focus on access to quality early childhood care and education. This is your chance to talk with members of the funding committee and weigh in on what you think is most important.
