Build Back Better passed in the House and now it's the Senate's turn: Child care facts

New Resources from CLASP

Build Back Better (BBB) passed in the House of Representatives with historic investments in child care. It's an exciting moment in time but there is more work to be done to ensure Congress knows the needed investments in the system to make it "more sustainable and equitable" (CLASP). Having said that, there is a lot going on within the legislation and it can get confusing. National organizations have been providing fact sheets, videos and webinars. The latest is from CLASP.
