Congress is working right now on COVID relief legislation! Join providers, parents, advocates and allies from across Pennsylvania this week as we call on Congress to save child care and pass this COVID relief legislation with at least $50B in funding for the industry.
While federal funds have helped some providers keep their doors open, we are still far from preventing a collapse of the industry. Providers still need funds to support facility expenses, float payroll, implement COVID practices and bridge the income gap if their program have been slow to enroll (enrollment is reported to be down between 20 and 50%).
We know that the child care industry is critical for families and our economy. If there is no child care, there is no recovery. Take action here. You can also call the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 to be connected to the offices of your members of Congress by phone.
