National Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (NACCRRA)
The poor state of the economy is hurting millions of Americans. Working families with children depend on child care to get and keep a job. More than 11 million children under age 5 are in the care of someone other than their mother. Millions more school age children are in after-school programs. Child care often is difficult to find, especially for infants and toddlers. It is challenging to afford and of questionable quality. NACCRRA’s public policy agenda is both grassroots-inspired and research-based. NACCRRA recommends that Congress; reauthorize and strengthen Child Care Development Block Grant (CCDBG), increase the CCDBG quality set-aside, require accountability for CCDBG funds, ensure affordable child care for families, strengthen rural child care, limit potentially unsafe license-exempt care, and make child care part of disaster planning.
