House Subcommittee Approves Appropriations Bill With Proposed Funding for ECE Programs

June 15, 2018

The House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education approved its FY 2019 appropriations bill that includes proposed funding levels for child care and other early childhood programs. The Subcommittee includes $5.2 billion for the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG), which is the same level as FY 2018.  While this is good news, and upholds the two-year congressional budget agreement from earlier this year, far more is needed in order to meet the child care need in the United States.

We look forward to continue working with Congress on prioritizing robust funding for critical child care programs like CCDBG.
