Our nation’s long-term well-being depends on a child care infrastructure that works for every family. An abundance of quality, affordable, child care is critical to both our economic recovery from the pandemic and our social welfare. However, a sizable portion of the American labor force will not be able to return to work if the nation’s child care supply has disappeared as a result of this crippling economic crisis. As national early learning and care organizations, we write to respectfully request that the next congressional relief package provide substantial, specific relief to address child care.
