Day of Action to #SaveChildCare
On October 1st, the House passed an updated Heroes Act, which provided $50 billion for child care stabilization grants to providers and $7 billion in emergency funding for the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG).  While this is a positive development, Congress and the White House have not reached an agreement on overall relief spending, leaving millions of families and thousands of providers without any source of relief. Since then, though conversations have stopped and started, the future of relief negotiations remains unclear. 
 
For months, we have been calling on Congress to provide at least $50B in dedicated funding to stabilize the child care sector. However, those calls have gone unanswered.  This is simply unacceptable when millions are jobless, children are housing and food insecure and unable to safely learn, and child care providers are fighting to keep their programs afloat. 
 
This week and beyond, we will call on Congress to prioritize passing a COVID relief package that includes at least $50B in dedicated funding for child care. Children, families, and early educators cannot wait any longer. As the seasons change and COVID-19 cases continue to surge, we need to ensure that programs have resources they need to weather the next several months until a vaccine is available.  Children, families, child care providers, and their communities cannot wait.
