The General Assembly is considering a budget that fully restores the $85 million passed in 2020. This funding will provide equitable access to high quality programs for all children and families. Our early educators and early learning programs must have consistent and stable funding.
The legislature is considering legislation that will provide dedicated funding for early education that will impact more than 20,000 children and families.
Your advocacy is essential to both passing Governor Northam’s proposed budget priorities and ensuring dedicated funding far into the future. Most importantly, taking action today gets Virginia one step closer to closing the readiness gap for kids.
