How can I get involved?
Contact Governor Carney HERE.
Secondarily, you can find your state Representative and Senator HERE to email them as well.
We need YOU to get involved and tell the Governor and other elected officials that we need to prioritize early childhood funding in next year’s budget.
Last year the funding for Delaware’s earliest learners was reduced, while programs continue to enter and move up in Stars and more children qualify for Purchase of Care funding. Our needs continue to grow, and we know that the best return is when we invest early!
The Delaware Department of Education proposed $5.9M to support growth in tiered reimbursements as a “door opener”, and we need to make sure this is included in the Governor’s budget in January.
