ADVOCATE

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted that child care is essential to the growth and development of our children, as well as to the health of our economy as a whole. But for far too many families, child care is out of reach. Last year 1 in 7 parents quit a job, did not take a job, or greatly changed their jobs due to problems with finding child care.

 

Child care expenses usually account for almost 40% of a single parent’s income. We need to ensure that more families are able to afford quality child care, and that our child care providers and workers can not only survive but thrive.

 

That's why we're asking you to call or email your legislator and tell them you support an increase in funding, income eligibility thresholds, and child care provider reimbursements for the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP).
