At Child Care Aware® of America (CCAoA), we are thrilled that the FY2018 appropriations bill has passed in the Senate, which includes an increase of $2.37 billion in the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG). This funding is critical in supporting systems professionals, providers, children and families across the nation.
CCAoA will continue to fight for and alongside families and children until access to affordable child care is a reality for all. We will continue to advocate for robust funding of child care and early childhood education programs for FY2019.
Join us in thanking Congress for investing in child care and let’s continue the fight for early education opportunities for all children and families.
