🚨 SENATE BUDGET FAILS OHIO KIDS 🚨
THIS IS OUR LAST CHANCE TO REPRESENT YOUNG CHILDREN IN THE OHIO BUDGET.
Help us demand that Ohio policymakers RESTORE
Governor DeWine's proposed budget for children.
Following the Ohio Senate's release of the FY24-25 Budget Bill, Groundwork Ohio is devastated to share that the bill cuts over a HALF A BILLION DOLLARS in programs to support Ohio's youngest children and families. These programs were in Governor DeWine's proposed budget, and are now at risk of being left out of the final budget. It reverses progress on our most urgent crises including child care/workforce, infant mortality, and mental health. This is our last chance. Policymakers will meet in the coming weeks in conference committee to negotiate a final state budget.
Please take half a minute to help restore half a billion for Ohio kids.
Use YOUR VOICE to join us in doing all we can to ensure families have access to affordable child care, early learning, health and mental health programs, and much more.
