Thanks to Donald Trump’s federal hiring freeze hundreds of military families will soon feel the impact of having their child care taken away. Families who have children enrolled at the child development center (CDC) programs in Fort Knox, Kentucky and U.S. Army Garrison Weisbaden, Germany have received notice that the program will be suspended in February.
“Effective immediately, no new children will be enrolled in the CDC,” read a letter signed by the Fort Knox garrison commander, according to Military.com. “Also, effective 27 February 2017, the CDC will no longer accommodate childcare for our hourly care and part day families until further notice.”
Military families in Germany were notified six days before the closure. A letter circulating online dated for Wednesday noted that all part-day programs would end Feb. 28.
“This closure is a result of staff shortage due to the Federal Hiring Freeze,” the letter says. “It is with deep regret that USAG Wiesbaden CYS must take this action.”
