The United Way of Western Connecticut is launching a $1 million program over the next several years to support new family childcare centers in Danbury.  The Cora's Kids program was announced yesterday as one way for Danbury to address childcare challenges facing the city.  Other solutions are being advanced as part of a larger grant initiative where Danbury was awarded $450,000 from the Boston Federal Reserve's Working Cities Challenge.  Cora's Kids will offer incentives for up to 15 new licensees per year to keep childcare costs down and increase availability of home-based childcare centers.  United Way officials say childcare accounts for more than 25-percent of a household budget on average.
