Talking Points & Resources: Child Care

Child Care

Here are a few points to focus on when talking to your member of Congress, as well as additional resources where you can learn more. We encourage you to personalize this information with your own stories and experiences, so your representatives understand the impact their choices will have on you.

  • The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) is the key program that helps low- and moderate-income parents afford child care, but right now 5 out of 6 children eligible for assistance do not receive it and many states have waiting lists with tens of thousands of children.
  • Ask your Members of Congress to increase funding for the bipartisan Child Care and Development Block Grant so that more families can afford child care and more children can get a good start.
