Harris gun control speech

(AP) - Vice President Kamala Harris will visit a child care center to highlight the Biden administration’s efforts to expand child care and relieve the financial pressures of parenthood.

Harris on Friday plans to discuss new guidance on $15 billion in grants to support child care programs, forthcoming payments to families from the child tax credit and a separate credit to help parents pay for care.

The outreach is part of the continued implementation of President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package.

Administration officials expect that several million families will benefit from the assistance.

Harris will outline the guidance at the CentroNía child care center in Washington.
