According to Ulster County Executive Pat Ryan's Facebook page, the Project Resilience Child Care Initiative has secured much needed funding. The Project Resilience Child Care Initiative is a public and private partnership put together months ago to help assist families with unforeseen childcare needs due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
