As bills move through California’s legislative process, they are presented to and heard by several committees who may recommend amendments and vote on whether or not the bill should continue through the legislative process.

As legislators decide how to vote, they consider public opinion as expressed through position letters. To support a bill, you can submit your letter through the California Legislature Position Letter Portal.

If you have any questions, contact TFC staff!


Last Friday was the deadline to introduce new bills. There were 1556 Assembly Bills introduced and 662 Senate bills.

Child Care and Development Fund State Plan

The federal Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) is an aggregate of several funding sources that is distributed in block grants by the federal government to the states and territories. The majority of the funds are to be used to provide child care services to families who meet certain income and need criteria. A portion of the funding is to be used for activities to improve the quality of child care. Another portion is to be used to pay for costs of administering the CCDF.

The Plan Preprint for States and Territories is now available for public comment through 3/6/2024. The Public Hearing will be held at the CDSS' Headquarters at the following date, address, and time:

Date: March 6, 2024

Address: 744 P Street; Sacramento, CA 95814

Room: OB9, Rooms 235/237

Time: 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

The focus of the Plan Preprint (formatted in a Google document for you to add your comments) for FY 2025-2027 is to reduce burden, prioritize key policy areas, and facilitate communication of implementation action plans to address non-compliance. Click here to read ACF Overview of FY 2025-27 CCDF Plan Preprint.

The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) is the lead agency for California and it has the flexibility to modify this program at any time, including amending the options selected or described. Thriving Families California (TFC) has formed a workgroup responsible for providing direction to CDSS as they develop the California’s plan. The members of this workgroup are as follows:

·        Christina Acosta – Pomona Unified School District

·        Jolie Buberl – CDA

·        Rick Richardson – CDA

·        Tanya Vega - Child & Family Services (CFS) California Alternative Payment Program (CAPP); Stanislaus County Office of Education (SCOE)

·        Karen Ramirez – Hively

·        Mona Shirk - Hively

You may provide input to one of the members above or you may enter your comment directly on the Plan Preprint. We encourage you to take this opportunity to envision the possibilities, and not restrict your input based current circumstances. Consider new opportunities and removal of challenges that have not worked.

Federal Update

NWLC Federal Update

Federal Government Update: 


The House and Senate return from their Presidents’ Day recess next week. Lawmakers aim to roll out the first spending package Sunday ahead of the March 1 deadline for agencies covered under four of the annual appropriations bills. However, there are still significant areas of disagreement between the parties.


While lawmakers hope to finish the appropriations process by the March 1 and March 8 deadlines, the remaining tight timetable necessitates consideration of short-term stopgap options.


Another continuing resolution that would push back the deadlines by up to 14 days have been discussed as a backup option, sources familiar with the talks say. Specifically, a March 22 deadline is being eyed for the eight bills that would expire March 8, which are generally viewed as much heavier lift than the first batch.


NWLC remains wary of a shutdown or the ultimate fallback — a full-year patch that keeps federal funding static into the fall. More: Appropriations talks chug along; stopgap eyed as backup plan - Roll Call Reminder, a full-year Continuing Resolution (CR) would result in deep cuts for federal ECE programs.


It is critical that we continue to make the case that FY24 appropriations and any additional funding considered by Congress includes our ECE priorities. 

⇒ Please urge your Members of Congress to protect and expand funding for child care and early learning programs.


Our country needs Congress to push past the chaos and focus on the basics: keeping the government running and passing funding bills that place the needs of women, families, and children first. 

Child Tax Credit


As previously reported, the House passed the bipartisan Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act―the tax package that includes an expanded Child Tax Credit (CTC)―and now it’s on to the Senate. More: NWLC Statement on House Passage of Bipartisan Tax Bill

⇒ Please urge your Senators to pass the expanded CTC as soon as possible, so families can benefit this tax season.


We know how to end child poverty. That is why we are fighting for this expansion right now, and why we will keep fighting to further improve the CTC.   



Supplemental Federal Child Care Funding Update:


As the timeline for passing the national security supplemental request continues to draw out, we are now focused on ensuring that any future domestic supplemental that is considered includes $16 billion for child care and early learning.

 Please urge your Members of Congress to support the $16 billion proposal supported by President Biden and many congressional Democrats


As previously shared,

Take Action - WIC: The March to March 1

From the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC): 


Funding for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), including the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), runs out on March 1. Politico reports that when asked about final negotiations on the fiscal year (FY) 2024 spending bills, House Appropriations Committee Chair Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) stated, "I'm encouraged that the subcommittee staff, on both sides of the aisle, are working very hard trying to resolve all the differences.” Both chambers are adjourned until the last week in February.  


Potential roadblocks to a final spending deal could include House Speaker Mike Johnson’s (R-LA) insistence on attaching conservative “policy riders” (extraneous, non-budget policy items) to the spending legislation. Politico reports in an interview with DeLauro that when Democrats were in the majority “Republican appropriators issued an ultimatum - they wouldn't discuss programmatic issues until the riders were off the table, and that's what has to happen." 


⇒ Take Action: Urge Congress to Fully Fund WIC

It’s not too late to join in on the social media blitz to Congress to express “WIC Love” by fully funding the program in FY 2024. Send your WIC message to Members of Congress using FRAC's social media toolkit. Remember to tag your Members in your posts. Handles can be found here. Also, use FRAC’s Action Networkto send a message directly to Members of Congress, and share state impact data from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and WIC’s proven positive outcomes from the National WIC Association.   

 Report - Questioning the Promise of Employer-Sponsored Child Care Benefits

From New America’s Better Life Lab & Elliot Haspel:


Questioning the Promise of Employer-Sponsored Child Care Benefits (newamerica.org)


Employer-sponsored child care benefits—especially on-site child care centers and child care stipends—are rising in popularity. In the past several years, state governments (led by both Republicans and Democrats) have been passing substantial incentives for these benefits, a trend that is only accelerating. The federal government is also influencing employers to provide child care benefits.


Yet the push for employer-sponsored benefits has largely occurred without critical consideration of the costs involved. Increasingly delivering child care access via the employer-employee relationship brings up a host of philosophical and practical questions that need to be seriously examined. This report provides much-needed scrutiny.


Additionally, the report explores alternative models whereby employers pay into a publicly funded, choice-based child care system that benefits their employees while avoiding the pitfalls well established by the American experience of employer-sponsored health insurance.

Column - States Are Taking Action To Address the Child Care Crisis

From the Center for American Progress:


This week, the Center for American Progress’s Early Childhood team released a new column: “States Are Taking Action To Address the Child Care Crisis.


In this report, author Anna Lovejoy explores actions that states have taken in their 2023 legislative sessions to address the child care crisis in the absence of sustained federal investment in the child care and early learning system. 


Explore the column to learn strategies states have employed to increase child care worker compensation, expand access to care for children, and support the recruitment and retention of child care workers.

Field Highlights

California lawmakers face a ballooning budget deficit

The biggest challenge facing lawmakers and Gov. Gavin Newsom is the state budget deficit — and it just got bigger.

Today, the Legislative Analyst’s Office projected the shortfall as $15 billion higher, or $73 billion.

The analyst’s office had pegged the 2024-25 deficit at $58 billion in January, using Newsom’s revenue estimates when he presented his initial budget proposal of $292 billion. 

On Friday, Newsom’s Department of Finance reported that preliminary General Fund cash receipts in January were $5 billion below (or nearly 20%) the governor’s budget forecast. Unless state tax revenues pick up significantly, the bigger number will make it more difficult to balance the state budget just through dipping into reserves and targeted spending cuts.

States Are Taking Action To Address

the Child Care Crisis

Families need access to high-quality child care so that parents can work, go to school, or train for a job and so that young children can have the supports they need to thrive. More than 14.4 million, or 67.8 percent, of children in the United States have all available parents in the workforce, but lack of access to affordable care often forces families to make difficult decisions about their work to care for their children. This can include cutting back on work hours, forgoing promotions to more demanding roles, or leaving the workforce entirely. Even prior to the pandemic, approximately half of the population of children under age 5 in the United States lived in a child care desert, and COVID-19 had a devastating impact on the supply of child care nationally...
