Homeless, Hungry, and Hung Out to Dry

The American Prospect

According to calculations by Helen Blank of the National Women’s Law Center, Head Start, which offers educational programs for children ages three to five, will see a $425 million reduction, which will mean up to 70,000 children will no longer be able to enroll. The Child Care and Development Block Grants to fund childcare support in the states would be reduced by $121 million, leaving somewhere between 30,000 and 50,000 children without care.
