Save Federal Funding for Child Care

Child Care $ Threatened

Despite all the attention on the importance of child care to children, families and our very recovery from the pandemic, it has been dropped from the Federal Reconciliation Bill discussion. Once part of President Biden's Build Back Better package at $400 billion, child care is now off the table entirely.



Making child care truly affordable for working parents; creating universal PreK; paying the child care workforce a level of compensation that reflects their true value to society - none of that happens if the anticipated Federal child care funding goes away.

If child care is not a priority in the Reconciliation Bill, we will have learned nothing from the pandemic. And all our pledges to remake our child care system will ring hollow.

Let the President and your elected officials at every level of government know that child care must be a PRIORITY in the Reconciliation Bill.
