Empire State Campaign for Child Care
Act Now - Please Contact Your Congressional members TODAY!
Last month we sent you exciting news that Congressional leaders had reached a bipartisan budget agreement for non-military spending that included $5.8 billion for child care (CCDBG) funding. This will amount to approximately $129 million new funds for New York this year and then again next year; a significant and desperately needed increase in support for children, families and child care providers. As we cautioned, the agreement is not final until the full Congress approves and appropriates the Omnibus Budget, scheduled to occur by March 23.
Our contacts in Washington have told us some members of Congress want to reduce the total funding package, and that the CCDBG child care fund increase is now at risk.
Please complete the information below and send the message to your Congressional representatives to stand firm in support of this funding!
