Majority Leader Chuck Schumer Child Care Call-In Day Friday, July 8th
If new child care $ doesn't make it into the federal Reconciliation Bill, all the recent progress on child care ends.
Making more families eligible for subsidy, Stabilization Grants, Child Care Desert funding - these were all supported by Federal dollars.
You may remember the original Build Back Better bill called for $400 billion for child care. When that bill failed to move, a new bill called for $200 billion for child care. Now we could end up with $0 new funding.
Ask Majority Leader Schumer, who has fought for child care and children over the years, to get at least $200 billion for child care in the Reconciliation Bill.
You, your team and the parents you serve must call both offices:
DC Office: 202-224-6542
Westchester Office: 914-734-1532
