Governor Wolf's proposed $35 million increase for child care funding is the largest in a decade. The governor's proposed investments will decrease waiting lists by 11,000, replace the loss of federal funds, and take a small step to address inadequate state child care reimbursement rates.

However, the House passed a budget bill slashing the existing levels of child care funding by $28 million. This is unacceptable.

Currently, over 14,000 children remain on the waiting list with some children on the list for over a year. The House budget threatens to disrupt the Child Care Information Services (CCIS) system, setting back efforts by the Department of Human Services to create a more effective system of supports for both families and providers. This is the budget the Senate is currently considering.

We need your help. CALL THE GOVERNOR ON JUNE 13th!

Your advocacy makes a difference. Thank you for all you do every day for children and families.
