Tell Congress They Must Fund Child Care!

Join providers, parents, advocates and allies from across the United States as we call on Congress to save child care and pass legislation with at least $50 billion in funding for the industry.

Chronically underfunded and operating with razor thin margins even before the pandemic, our child care system is in a crisis.

Currently the industry is operating at approximately 80% capacity and of those open:

  • 70% are spending more on cleaning supplies and personal protective equipment

  • 73% have made layoffs, furloughs and/or pay cuts

  • 86% are serving fewer children

Without additional funding, 47% will close.

We know that the child care industry is critical for families and our economy. If there is no child care, there is no recovery.
