Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children (PPC) is a proud member of the Start Strong PA campaign, focused on increasing access to high-quality child care. As a partner, we recently released our updated interactive child care map tool, allowing users to see a variety of data points around child care access and quality, down to the county or state legislative district level. After completing your search, you can also print a fact sheet by these geographical levels.
While we recently made great progress in securing $125 million in stimulus funds as part of the state’s stopgap budget and stimulus package (beyond the $106 million allocated in federal stimulus funds via the Child Care Development Block Grant), we continue our advocacy work with campaign partners on the distribution of these funds before the Wolf Administration. We continue to monitor additional federal relief that may occur as part of the next stimulus package in Washington.
