Stay updated on recent work to ensure all children high-quality early childhood opportunities.
A Recent Legislative Win
In February, Congress passed and President Trump signed into law a budget deal that included an additional $5.8 billion (an additional $2.9 billion for each of the next two years) for the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG), the main federal child care program. This funding increase will allow an additional 230,000 children to receive child care assistance and help states boost the quality of child care.
A new report from the National Women’s Law Center suggests strategies to increase parents’ income, improve access to job training and paid leave, and ensure children high-quality early childhood opportunities.
