ICYMI: Last week, our analysts spoke with community members about DC's budget process, how COVID has affected the city's spending, and how to advocate NOW for a #JustRecoveryDC. The recording is up, so tune in! https://www.dcfpi.org/event/community-budget-forum-fy-2021/
ON OUR BLOG: Many childcare providers were operating with thin margins pre-COVID. @QubilahHudd & @LlyssaBrooke write on the increases in public funding crucial to ensuring DC's childcare industry can remain intact and meet increased needs. https://bit.ly/3h3DYJF
From @QubilahHudd's testimony before @councilofdc Committee of the Whole and Committee on Education: "Without dedicated public funding support, DC may lose more than 6,500 early learning seats, which represents 20 percent of the city’s childcare supply."
