Tell Congress Not to Exclude Catholic Schools from Federal Child Care and Pre-K Programs
We need your help to ensure the Build Back Better Act does not effectively exclude Catholic schools from child care and pre-K programs, thereby severely limiting options for families.

USCCB is encouraged by many provisions being considered for the Build Back Better Act to support the common good, including family supports, housing, migration, and the environment.  We also recognize how important child care and pre-kindergarten are for working families, and the Church has always affirmed that parents should choose the best environment for care and education of their children.

However, the current child care and universal pre-kindergarten provisions in the Build Back Better Act could effectively exclude Catholic providers and many other faith-based providers, and this needs to be fixed.

The USCCB has raised these concerns with Congress.  The letter USCCB sent Congress that can be accessed here. But it is vital that Congress hear from you directly.

Thank you so much for taking the time to contact your representatives and senators in Congress.  Congress must ensure the faith-based community can participate in the Build Back Better Act’s child care and universal pre-kindergarten programs.
