Child Care = Priority for Infrastructure

August 29, 2019

The US Chamber of Commerce Foundation is laying the groundwork in creating a strong business priority to include child care and early education as part of infrastructure

As part of a long-standing push in support of early education, the Foundation highlights work in local and metro chambers and lays out an excellent care for the priority in their multi-sector approach. Metro Atlanta Chamber's coalition work in early education has been highlighted as well in a previous post that focused on collaborative chamber approaches. 

"To create an effective movement, the coalition started by establishing a shared understanding about how to best support the resiliency of Georgia’s workforce: supports, resources, and incentives are required across a variety of areas to ensure every family has access to quality, affordable childcare."

As part of business community and partner engagement, the US Chamber Foundation held a Twitter Chat on August 27th, co-hosted by the Bipartisan Policy Center. The Metro Atlanta Chamber's public policy staff participated in the Chat along with other chamber's staff and non–profit organizations from across the U.S. To read a full transit of the Chat, including links to more information on early education infrastructure, click here
