Dear Supporter,

Congress will soon consider plans to fund child care for more than 1.4 million children, including 45,000 New Jersey kids in low-income, working families. We need to stand together to urge our elected officials to increase funding for this critical service for our youngest children.

Send your message now! It only takes a minute.

Last year, Congress re-approved the Child Care and Development Block Grant, strengthening child care health and safety standards, requiring background checks for all child care staff and mandating new training for child care providers.

These positive steps require a significant additional federal investment to ensure that states can meet these higher standards. Currently, no new dollars have been earmarked to pay for these improvements. Without additional federal funding, states—including New Jersey -- will be forced to cut the number of low-income children and families receiving a child care subsidy. This program is essential for children and their working parents, giving parents peace of mind knowing their children are cared for while they work. 

Please send your message today!
