Senate Approves Budget Resolution!  
Wednesday, August 11, 2021 - All Day

Senate Approves Budget Resolution, Calls for Major Investment in Child Care

On August 11, the U.S. Senate approved a federal Budget Resolution.

In a more ordinary year, the Budget Resolution tells the appropriations committees how much money they each can work with, and together we do the annual advocacy of investments in the Child Care and Development Block Grant and Head Start.

But this has been no ordinary year, Members of Congress can no longer ignore that child care is infrastructure. Parents can’t go to work without child care and child caregiving requires people like NAFCC members who are able to open, stay open, be healthy and well and compensated and valued for the crucial role they play.
