Employer-Based Child Care Solutions for the U.P.
January 12, 2022
Employers all over the U.P. are finding that child care shortages are impacting their ability to retain or hire workers. Many employers have considered how they might be able to provide or contribute to child care but often aren’t sure where to start. Fortunately, we have some great examples of employer-supported child care already taking place in our U.P. communities that we can learn from.
To share these best practices and identify other regional partnerships and solutions, the Lake Superior Community Partnership and the U.P. Child Care Task Force hosted a virtual discussion on employer-based child care solutions on Tuesday, January 11. This virtual event highlighted how employers within and outside the U.P. are engaging in partnerships, building child care capacity, and coordinating innovative solutions to meet this critical need.

Webinar: Housing Trends in Marquette County
For residents and businesses to thrive, we need homes – but long-term, nationwide trends related to construction costs and housing demand are making it harder for individuals of all incomes to find the homes they need locally. To find local solutions to this issue, understanding housing trends and needs is an important first step. What kinds of housing do we need in Marquette County, and how do we build it? Who should be involved in solutions, and what’s being done now? These questions were discussed during a virtual panel on Tuesday, April 27, featuring local and regional leaders. Speakers shared information about the newly-released housing needs assessment, an update on the City of Marquette’s Ad Hoc Housing Committee, and details on the Marquette County housing programs.
