When it rains, it pours—even with the budgetary process in Washington!
With your help, we have been working hard to finalize funding streams for child care and Head Start in fiscal year 2011. And now, before that process has even been completed, we have to gear up for the next round. In just one week, the President will release his budget proposal for fiscal year 2012.
With so much happening at once, you’re invited to join us for a conference call, “Early Childhood Funding: the President’s FY 2012 Budget and Wrapping Up FY 2011 Appropriations” on Thursday, February 17 at 3:00 p.m. During the call, we’ll bring you up to speed with the latest information on early childhood funding for both FY 2011 and FY 2012.
Register today, and we’ll give you all the information you need about what the appropriations votes and the new budget proposals mean for the early childhood programs that are important to families and children.
Speakers on the conference call will include:
- Helen Blank, National Women’s Law Center
- Danielle Ewen, CLASP
- Adele Robinson, National Association for the Education of Young Children
- Harriet Dichter, First Five Years Fund
The budget debates will have a major impact on our investments in early learning. So now, more than ever, it’s important to keep on top of the latest news.
Thank you so much for your continued support. These are a busy few weeks in the funding process on Capitol Hill, so register today to be kept up to date with the latest news and analysis.
