We did it, Advocate! Together, we changed the law!
It’s official, Advocate: House Bill 2016 was passed by the Arizona State Legislature and was signed by Governor Ducey on April 28, 2021. Moms receiving child care assistance in Arizona will be able to maintain their benefits while working towards their educational goals to reach self-sufficiency!
This is a monumental achievement, three years in the making! Thank you for everything you did to support this legislation, whether you attended WFSA Advocacy Day, signed in to support the bill in the RTS, contacted your Legislators, or otherwise helped spread the word.
We also wish to thank Representative Udall – the sponsor of HB 2016 – who believed in the cause and championed the bill throughout the process.
Together, we’re making sure parents and caretakers – and especially single moms – can pursue educational opportunities for better employment prospects and earning potential.
