Hopkins House Testifies Before U.S. Senate Subcommittee

At the end of September, federal emergency pandemic funding for childcare providers ended. During the pandemic, childcare providers were hit hard as parents hunkered down at home and kept their children close. The federal funding helped sustain the sector, ensuring that childcare would be available when the pandemic ended, and parents returned to their workplaces.

While the pandemic has eased and parents are beginning to return to their workplaces, the childcare sector remains in deep crisis. Affordable, high quality, safe childcare options for working parents have long been scarce in the U.S. The pandemic reduced these options further, as more than 16,000 childcare providers nationwide closed permanently during the public health crisis.

To help raise the alarm about the critical state of childcare in the U.S. and what the loss of the emergency federal funding means for the sector, Hopkins House President J. Glenn Hopkins testified before the economic policy subcommittee of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. Hopkins House was also featured in a CBS National TV News story about the deepening childcare crisis. Click below to watch the TV news broadcast.
