Cross-Partisan Action Plan to Support Families with Young Children in America (2024)

Simply put, it is too hard to raise young children in America today while also workingImproving support for working families with young children is at the forefront of our national conversation Most parents are in the labor force; however, workplaces and government policies have not caught up to help support working families in today’s environment. The need for consensus solutions is more relevant now than ever with historically high levels of polarization and divided government following the 2022 midterms.

The Cross-Partisan Action Plan to Support Families with Young Children in America, from the Convergence Collaborative on Supports for Working Families, discusses changing the narrative about working families, rethinking cash support for low to moderate income families, ensuring more high quality child care options, and supporting parents with new children to give them the opportunity to bond with an infant or new child, while maintaining economic and job security.
