Earlier this week, we sent out a child care action alert to encourage you to raise your voice for children, families, and providers. As of today, Ohioans have sent nearly 4,000 messages to their congressional members and this number is exponentially growing by the hour.
The latest House coronavirus bill text, the HEROES Act, includes $7 billion for CCDBG funding for the child care industry. But child care providers, advocates, and national organizations are calling for much more.
Today, we're asking you to call Congress urging them to include at least $50 billion in dedicated, flexible funding for child care in the HEROES Act. If you already sent a message to your representative, please take one minute right now to pick up the phone and give them a call.
