Federal Policies to Support High-Quality Early Learning

New America published a new article that highlights federal policies in support of high-quality early learning. The article also touches on investing in the construction, renovation, and expansion of facilities. See below for an excerpt-

“There are already several bills from the last congressional session that would help address the need for investment in facilities. For example, in July The House passed the Moving Forward Act, a $1.5 trillion plan to modernize the nation’s infrastructure. The bill includes a five-year, $10 billion grant program to upgrade child care facilities. These funds would be distributed to states to be used for acquiring, constructing, renovating, or improving child care facilities, including reconfiguring facilities in response to the coronavirus pandemic.”
