Thank you so much for reaching out to legislators on federal funding for child care! It worked and they are definitely paying attention.

Now, we need your help to encourage them to take specific legislative action on one piece of the overall federal child care funding picture -- Child Care Assistance Program provider reimbursement rates.

Minnesota sits on over $65 million in unspent federal funds earmarked for federally mandated increases in the Child Care Assistance Program reimbursement rates. These funds should be helping to increase access, reduce costs for families and improve the precarious finances of child care providers during and beyond COVID-19.

Because of how Minnesota’s Child Care Assistance Program is structured, only the legislature can make this necessary change.

Families and providers can’t wait. We need your help to urge action this week. We made it easy to connect with legislators!

Thank you again for all you do for children and families.
