Let's Do it Now!
Our nation failed to act on stabilizing the childcare industry. Millions of children will lose their childcare. Tens of thousands of providers and family members will be impacted. It’s not too late to #SaveChildcare.
The Child Care Stabilization Act was recently introduced to ensure children and their families receive the care they need. Inaction is not an option! According to the Century Foundation:
- Approximately 3.2 million children could lose child care as a result of price increases, staffing shortages, and program closures.
- The loss in tax and business revenue will likely cost states $10.6 billion in economic activity per year.
- Millions of parents will feel the impact, many will either leave the workforce or reduce their hours, costing families $9 billion each year in lost earnings.
