Making a strong case for effective investments in children and youth in the Keystone State

Navigate Pennsylvania

On July 10, 2017, a $32 billion 2017-2018 state budget was enacted that included big wins for at-risk children and families in Pennsylvania. Our law enforcement, retired military, business, and sports leaders, in coordination with our partners in the Pre-K for PA and Early Learning PA campaigns, made a strong case for increasing effective investments in Pre-K Counts, Head Start State Supplemental, Child Care Works and voluntary home visiting/parent coaching programs. The diverse Council for a Strong America membership in Pennsylvania will continue focusing attention on the urgent need to help give Pennsylvania’s most at-risk children and families their best chance to succeed while decreasing future crime, enhancing our national security, increasing workforce readiness and saving taxpayer dollars.
