he Erie County Department of Social Services must immediately scale back a state program aimed at providing child care subsidies to low-income families because the state has not provided the necessary funding, county officials said.
The county receives a child care block grant to offset the cost of day care services for children of recipients of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families and the working poor. Running at current levels, the program is costing local taxpayers $10 million more than the state is providing to the county.

This is so unfair, they help her pay for child care but is not help for her to get off the poverty level without getting penalized.
This is just beyond me and now she will have to lose her only job because she still will not be able to afford child care on her own without government assistance.
What a vicious cycle.
