Critical Investments We’re Advocating for in the 2021-22 State Budget

In the months since Gov. Wolf’s budget proposal in February, PPC staff have been working with policymakers and our partners across several statewide advocacy coalitions to ensure the FY 2021-22 state budget includes investments in programs that we know help children and families. These include high-quality child care and pre-k, evidence-based home visiting, and career and technical education.

With the June 30th deadline fast approaching, we’re pleased to share informative summaries of how PPC is working to build better futures for kids in the state budget, brought to you by members of our team.

The House and Senate are in session for the next month until the budget passes, so stay tuned for further updates from PPC on the latest activity in Harrisburg.
