Kansas is still looking for ways to cut the budget. Earlier this week, lawmakers announced plans to cut funding for SRS by $26 million.
With matching funds from the federal government no longer coming in, the cut will be $49 million.
Early Head Start childcare is one program that may be on the cutting block. If it is cut, Shelley Hansen's SRS-funded daycare will have to close its doors. Hansen would have to find new clients, privately.
Single mother Sarah Haith relies on Early Head Start. She would have to drop out of school to take care of her daughter if the program is cut. Children receive more than just daycare at early head start.
The program provides nursing care, nutrition and family planning.
