Congress: Don’t cut childcare from the infrastructure bill!

Congress: Don’t cut childcare from the infrastructure bill!

President Biden’s American Jobs Plan included crucial funding to address America’s child care crisis. But now a group of conservatives are pushing a new infrastructure “compromise” that cuts child care funding out entirely. The U.S. faces a shortage of affordable, quality childcare and Congress must keep child care funding in the infrastructure bill.

Why is this important?

A group of Democratic women in Congress are working to ensure that the infrastructure bill Congress is debating includes funding for childcare. The proposal from the Democratic Women’s Caucus includes $700 billion in funding for high-quality childcare over the next 10 years. It’s a great idea that will help so many families and make it possible for more parents to work.

But conservatives in both Parties are working on a “compromise” plan – and it doesn’t include any support or funding for childcare. Roads and bridges are important -- but without childcare, many parents still can’t make it to work, creating financial instability for families and holding our entire economy back.

Negotiations are happening right now in Washington, so we need to act fast to make sure members of Congress know that parents expect them to look out for families and kids in the infrastructure bill.
