Obama Plan Could Ease Child, Elder Costs

The taskforce also recommends allocating an additional $1.6 billion to child care in 2011, the largest one-year increase in 20 years, to serve an additional 235,000 children through the federal Child Care Development Fund.

Elder issues: The taskforce estimates that 38 million Americans provide unpaid care to an aging relative. The proposed $102.5 million Caregiver Initiative adds $52.5 million in funding to Department of Health and Human Services caregiver support programs that provide temporary respite care, counseling, training and referrals to critical services. The extra funding would seek to help 200,000 additional caregivers and provide 3 million more hours of respite care. It also adds $50 million to programs that provide transportation, adult day care and in-home services, such as aides that help seniors bathe and cook.
