Need to Call NC House NOW!

The House HHS Appropriations Committee is meeting behind closed doors as we write. They must hear from you now! Let them know that you will hold them accountable for their support (or lack there of) of early childhood education. Investments in young children are investments in our future.

The House Education Committee met earlier and reduced the cut for More at Four from $10 million to $7.5 million AND stopped the TANF swap. The Senate budget swapped state funds for one-time federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Family (TANF) funds. That means that NC will continue to invest in high quality preschool. The House must do the same for all children 0 to 5–reduce the cut to Smart Start and stop the swap of state funds for one-time federal funds for the Division of Child Development.
