Increased Child Care Funding

Thanks to incredible advocacy, a 25% increase in child care funding was included in the 2018-2019 New Hampshire state budget.

The additional $15 million for child care scholarships was included in the state budget to meet new federal program requirements.  The increase in funding ensures continued access for  New Hampshire’s children and families to quality, affordable child care. Investing in early development opportunities like quality child care is a vital and proactive way to support children and families, reduce state costs, and prevent future substance misuse.
