September 9, 2020

While the House passed the bipartisan Child Care Is Essential Act (S. 3874/ H.R. 7027) proposing $50 billion for the child care industry, Congress and the White House did not reach an agreement on overall relief spending, leaving millions of families and thousands of providers without any source of relief.  

The uncertainty of whether or not we’ll see a coronavirus relief package any time soon is frustrating. It remains crucial that  constituents continue to sustain pressure on Congress. Reaching  out to your Members of Congress reinforces that families, providers and the economy are depending on them to ensure at least $50 billion in stabilization funding for child care is included in this next package.


Call or write your Representative or Senator and ask them to support a stabilization fund for child care.  Click here for Illinois’ Senator information.
