Bi-Partisan Congressional Agreement Helps Millions of Children and Their Families

May 4, 2015 5:18 pm Published by

Something great happened in the U.S. Congress last week that is being cheered by millions of low income children, their families and afterschool providers and advocates throughout our nation.  Last Wednesday, April 15, 2015,  the U.S. Senate’s Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee voted unanimously to restore funding for after-school programs in the next federal budget. This is an important win for two reasons: first, it successfully sets the stage for a full Senate vote ahead of actions by the House and President; and second, it demonstrates that positive things happen when we put aside partisan politics and take action.
