The working version of the budget currently includes cuts to programs like the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC), campus child care, and nutrition programs – all of which help working families and children. The current plan also cuts $95 million in funding from the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG), which means many families will lose child care subsidies even before states start using funds for implementation of the new regulations.
We need to make sure CCDBG receives an additional $1.4 billion in funding above FY 2017 levels, and that programs like CCLC, CCAMPIS, and SNAP are fully supported, not cut. Join us by taking action today!
