State Budget and Advocacy Resource Page
We are your voice on public policy issues of importance to the state and federally funded early care and education community. Leveraging coalition efforts and grassroots advocacy by volunteers, we work to educate and inform the Legislature and state agencies about the impact of specific fiscal and policy proposals on programs' ability to best meet the need of California's children, families and workforce.
