GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Brown and Kenosha counties are sharing $2.6 million federal dollars to help parents keep up with their child support.
The funding is designed to help non-custodial parents pay for services they need to support their families over the next five years. That could include things like transportation for parents to go to and from jobs, so they can afford to make their payments.
The counties will have at least some discretion on how they’ll use the federal money.
Officials say the funding will be designed for parents who are at least a year behind on their court-ordered child support payments.
