Family-friendly workplaces are essential to support working families, and Kansas is fortunate to have Kansas Power of the Positive (KPoP) leading these efforts. KPoP recognizes the influence of family-friendly workplace policies and practices on preventing adverse childhood experiences. The coalition focuses on societal-level interventions, and a major focus is the Family Friendly Workplace coordinated with the Wichita State University Community Engagement Institute.
With Governor Kelly signing House Bill 2237 – Child Day Care Assistance Credit, all businesses in Kansas can apply to receive a state income tax credit for helping their employees cover child care costs if the business helps provide child care itself.
