Yesterday’s announcement by the Cabinet of Health and Family Services of budget cuts to child care demonstrates our state’s lack of commitment to Kentucky’s children and families.
- Effective April 1, 2013 the Kentucky Cabinet will not accept new applications from low income working families seeking assistance.
- Effective July 1, 2013 income eligibility for current participants will be dramatically reduced.
Immediate action is needed to oppose Kentucky’s diminishing support of our children and families.

Comments: As thousands of advocates across the state gather next week for Children’s Advocacy Day
our voices will be loud and clear – the draconian cuts to the Child Care Assistance Program on the backs of low income working parents is unacceptable.
Kindergarten readiness and the health and safety of our youngest citizens is in jeopardy of compromising your long standing commitment to young children.
Governor, we need your help to keep parents earning and children learning.
