DC Action and Under 3 DC Call on Lawmakers for Child Care Stabilization

Stabilization Letter to Bowser

DC Action for Children, co-chair of the Under 3 DC Coalition, calls on Mayor Bowser and her administration to take urgent action with the DC Council to fund a child care stabilization package for the approximately 474 licensed center and home-based child care businesses serving over 37,000 young children under age 5.

This package should include:

• Relief grants for the licensed center and home-based child care businesses serving young children under age 5;

• Incentives for child care businesses offering child care to emergency and essential workers; and

• Gap-filling in reimbursements to providers for waived family co-pays
