This September, child care programs throughout the United States will face an existential crisis, as federal funds that saved the child care sector during the pandemic expire. As a result, tens of thousands of child care programs will close and millions of children will lose spots, with states bearing the brunt of the economic impact.

Join The Century Foundation on Thursday, June 22, 2023 from 1:30 to 2:30 PM ET, exactly 100 days from when federal funds sunset, to learn about TCF’s groundbreaking new study about the looming child care cliff and what we can do to avoid it. 

Live CART and ASL interpretation will be provided.
