Time Sensitive Action: Push for $1.2B for Child Care in One House Budgets

The governor’s budget proposal falls short in providing the funding needed to adequately support child care providers and the families they serve. Now more than ever, families and child care educators are relying on Albany to respond. This response must prioritize an increase in wages for the child care workforce. The imminent release of the one house budgets is our opportunity to push for those essential changes.

Take action by emailing Senate Leader Stewart-Cousins, Speaker Heastie, and your State Legislators. Calling for their commitment to child care by including $1.2 billion for the child care workforce in their budget proposals.

Your advocacy carries immense weight and can be a powerful force for positive change for our dedicated educators as well as families and communities across the state. Together, let’s make a lasting impact on the future of child care for all New Yorkers.
