A small investment in helping low-income working families pay for quality child care makes a world of difference: young children thrive and grow, parents are reliable employees, and businesses spend less on recruitment and training costs that result from staff turnover.
But New York State's proposed budget has no increase in state resources dedicated to child care. With only 20% of eligible families accessing chilld care assistance, we need change now!
Take action today so that families whose wages make quality child care unaffordable - and the underpaid child care workers who struggle to make ends meet - are given more support in New York's 2020-21 budget.
