Child  Care Council of Westchester: Child Care and Head Start Need Increases Not Cuts
House Labor HHS Appropriations Subcommittee - Action Required by: 8/31/23

Inability to find or pay for child care keeps parents out of the workforce, especially women. It's often the biggest bill in the household, yet the child care workforce is among the most poorly paid of any profession. Despite proof during the pandemic of the essential nature of child care access, cuts are proposed for Head Start/Early Head Start and at best, level-funding for child care. On average, the U.S. economy loses $122 billion annually due to lost wages because workers can't get the child care they need. For our children, our workforce, our economy and our future, increase funding for early childhood education programs. More Information.
