Navigate Pennsylvania

After a 10-month state budget stalemate, legislators and the Governor came together to enact a 2016-2017 budget that increased funding for pre-K programs. Our diverse membership in Pennsylvania has made a strong case for effective investments in children and families like high-quality early child care and education and voluntary home visiting programs.
