Continuing Resolution: The Good and Bad News for Children

Call your Representative and Senators and ask them to help ensure the children, youths and young adults left behind in recent deal on the Continuing Resolution get the help they need. Congress doesn’t have to wait until February 8th. Urge them to take action now. Let your members know how important it is that funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program was extended for six years. Urge them now to work with others to implement protections for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program so these young Dreamers, and those yet to apply for DACA, do not end up with lost promises and deportation in their futures. Urge funding too for the Maternal and Infant Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV) and the Community Health Centers that serve millions of children and families and for extended hurricane relief for children and families in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Texas and Florida. Help for all these children, youths and young adults is long overdue. Act now.
