In preparation for the upcoming 85th Legislative Session, CHILDREN AT RISK has continued to research and collaborate with statewide partners on policy priorities and community needs. We have just begun our 9-city Texas Tour to release key findings on state-funded child care programs. Texas' child care subsidy system provides over $500 million per year for child care assistance to low-income working families, offering a critical source of early learning for our state's most vulnerable children.
The Early Investment Project: Subsidized Child Care in Texas
follows a year-long study funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The final report shows that quality child care programs are critical for getting kids school ready, improving their academic success, and increasing economic prosperity for our state.
Please stay tuned at the end of this month for the release of the final report and policy recommendations, which will also be distributed to policymakers, school districts, and early education stakeholders to serve as a blueprint for increasing access to high quality child care programs.
Very truly yours,
Last month, you helped us raise more than $2,500 for North Texas Giving Day! This success could not have been possible without our volunteers and supporters, and we are so grateful to each and every one of you.
