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
