House to Take Up Early Learning Challenge Fund Today

From our friends at the National Association for the Education of Young of Children (NAEYC):

The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to take up tomorrow the Early Learning Challenge Fund, which is Title IV of H.R. 3221.  (The bill primarily deals with student financial aid.) This is an important opportunity for new resources ($8 billion over 8 years) for grants to states to improve their systems of quality early learning and development across all types of programs.  The Early Learning Challenge Fund is paid by savings made in the student financial aid section of the bill and does not add to the deficit.
 
You can email your Representative at www.naeyc.org/policy/action
