Crackdown on child care fraud saves Wis. $45 million
MADISON (WKOW) -- By cracking down on fraudulent child care providers, state officials expect to save about $45 million this year.
The savings is part of the Wisconsin Shares program. A spokeswoman for the Department of Children and Family Services says most of the money will come from recovering fraudulent payments in the $350 million program.
At least $10 million will be set aside for YoungStar, a new child care rating system.
The Wisconsin Shares program started in 1997 as a way to help move parents off welfare and into work by subsidizing child care costs.
