Earlier this week, House lawmakers sent a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package to President Biden, which he has signed. The package includes $39 billion in direct funding for child-care providers through the Child Care and Development Block Grant Program (CCDBG) plus an additional $1 billion allocated to Head Start programs.
