On January 16, 2013, CLASP's Hannah Matthews, NWLC's Helen Blank, and NAEYC's Adele Robinson discussed the many uncertainties that early childhood programs face as we move toward the next round of fiscal negotiations. Read their discussion of the impact of postponing the sequester; when and how Congress might resolve final appropriations for FY 2013; when we can expect to see a budget for FY 2014; what the prospects for reauthorizing the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) are; and how the next round of debt ceiling discussions might impact Early Childhood programs for low-income children and families.
