Thousands of parents, kids, and providers depend on quality, affordable child care in Illinois. But Illinois’ budget is in urgent crisis, with a $73 million dollar shortfall threatening to dely providers’ payments till July and a proposed $85 million cut in the Governor’s budget threatening to crash our state’s child care system altogether
It’s up to all of us to fight devastating cuts to child care. Together, we must hold our lawmakers accountable to stand up for the working parents, child care providers, and kids who rely on the Child Care Assistance Program every day. That's why, on May 15th, we're rallying in Springfield to make our lawmakers understand just how devastating this funding crash could be for Illinois.
