Child Care Aware® of America is the only non-profit organization that focuses exclusively on Child Care and Child Care issues. After nearly two decades of concerted legislative efforts, raising the issues of quality, cost, and safe of child care before key policymakers and influencers, Child Care Aware® of America finally celebrated the passage of the Child Care Development and Block Grant (CCDBG) Reauthorization legislation.
President Obama, in his State of the Union address in January 2015 acknowledged child care as a “national economic priority.” Now more than ever, our messages are being heard and people are listening. However, families are still struggling with how to pay for quality child care, where to find affordable child care that provides early learning opportunities during the most critical years of a child’s development, and where to go to find resources.
Child Care Aware® of America continues to keep a steady drumbeat on the Hill and with the Administration regarding the importance of quality, safe and affordable child care and its impact on the workforce. You can stay on top of our public policy and advocacy initiatives as a subscriber to Capitol Connection which is distributed bi-weekly on Tuesdays.
