Governor Wolf’s proposed budget would add 14,545 additional children in high-quality early learning classrooms and create 3,400 new jobs for Pennsylvania. Your voice was heard and we need to keep talking.
Gov. Wolf’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2015-16 calls for:
– Increasing funding for Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts by $100 million, which will nearly double the commonwealth’s current annual investment of $97.3 million.
– A $20 million increase in state funding for the Head Start Supplemental Assistance Program, which would bring total funding to $59 million.
– Investing nearly $36 million in available federal funds to increase the availability of high-quality child care programs.
