Thanks to the work of early childhood leaders across the country, support for early care and education is on the rise. But funding gaps pose a significant challenge to making quality early care and education a reality for more children.
On December 19, 2019, ECFC and the BUILD hosted a panel of early childhood and tax experts to explore innovative ways to raise funds through dedicated state and local tax revenue. This webinar outlined essential guiding questions and seven tax areas that state and local early childhood leaders can consider pursuing to expand and diversify public funding for early care and education. Interactive opportunities for ECFC members were included.
Discussions built on a new report from The BUILD Initiative, Center for American Progress, Children’s Funding Project, Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, and University of Maryland College Park, Schools of Public Health and Public Policy (2019), supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Pritzker Children’s Initiative.
