LEGISLATIVE ALERT: Colorado HB18-1004

Help Improve Child Care Availability in Colorado!

 ECEA is partnering with several other early care & education advocates in support of HB18-1004.

We need your help to ensure Colorado’s innovative Child Care Contribution Tax Credit does not expire! House Bill 18-1004 would continue Colorado’s innovative Child Care Contribution Tax Credit, which is set to expire, for another five years (see fact sheet and supporters here).

Call, write or message your State Representative now to support child care in Colorado.

Child care and youth programs help ensure children have quality, enriching experiences while at the same time allowing parents to work. Investing in the network of providers that support children outside of school time means supporting two generations (parent and child) at once.

The CCTC reauthorized in HB 1004 is one of the main incentives to address the availability of child care. We need to encourage providers to offer these services in communities throughout our state and, for 50 cents on the dollar, we get a great return on this investment in promoting access to child care.

Please help support this legislation by contacting your Representative now. Click here to call, email, or send messages via social media to your legislator.

Thank you for speaking up for Colorado kids and families!
