CHIPS child care requirement: Equitable implementation promotes stable, well-compensated early childhood jobs


The Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors or CHIPS Incentives Program leverages public dollars to implement a unique child care requirement. Semiconductor manufacturers that apply for more than $150 million of CHIPS direct funding must provide access to high-quality child care for facility and construction workers. This stipulation is a clear recognition that child care is an essential workforce and economic support and a signal that our current child care system has collapsed. Yet, implementation of the child care requirement remains up to semiconductor manufacturers as applicants. They may understandably be unfamiliar with the challenges and inequities posed by our present-day child care system. (author abstract)
