"A DollarWise Innovation Grant city is one that is taking care of its people and creating a more inclusive economy for the future."

That's the message from Hillary Schieve, mayor of Reno, Nev., and president of the United States Conference of Mayors, who announced a $10,000 grant for Santa Fe, NM, at the conference's winter meeting in January, the Albuquerque Journal reports.

The city was one of seven to receive the grant, which was awarded to home-based child care providers "particularly women of color," per a press release.

The other six cities to receive the grant are Rochester, NY; Anaheim, Calif.; Colorado Springs, Colo.; Findlay, Ohio; Montgomery, Ala.; and Richmond, Va.

"American cities drive our economy, and they are all stronger when everyone in the community is empowered for success," Schieve said in the press release.

Growing Up New Mexico, a Santa Fe advocacy group, will use the money to "support family and home-based child care providers to grow their business and quality of care for young children across New Mexico," according to its website. Read the Entire Article
