Kentucky makes historic investments in child care.

There’s still work to do.

Take action

It’s official. The 2024 general assembly session is over, and Governor Beshear signed the commonwealth’s 2025-2026 budget.

Thanks to your advocacy, Kentucky will invest $62.9 million a year to support child care, including supporting the pro-work Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) and substantial policy commitments to address benefits cliffs, catalyze innovation in early childhood education and stabilize child care centers.

This historic investment in child care lays a foundation for the future.

However, it doesn’t address Kentucky’s long-term need for a sustainable system of early childhood care and education. It also is not enough to avoid a sharp reduction in child care access for working families.

Will you take a few seconds to thank your legislator for their investment and ask them to keep working to build a comprehensive system that supports Kentucky’s working families?
