Support quality child care in Nebraska! Support LB485!

Dear [title] [last name], 

I urge you to support LB485 because it expands initial eligibility for the child care subsidy program to Nebraska families who need it. Additionally, it would allow families to continue to recieve the subsidy even if they receive a small increase in pay, allowing them to continue their upward mobility without worry of losing the much-needed assistance. 

Early child care and education are expensive in Nebraska. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, child care is affordable if it costs no more than 7% of a family's income. By this standard, only 5.8% of Nebraska families can afford infant care. The average annual cost of infant care in Nebraska is $12,571-  thats $1,048 per month and 24.4% more than the average rent in Nebraska. Child care for a 4-year-old costs $11,420 annually, or $952 each month. Because of this, quality child care is especially out of reach for low-income families. 

Every child in Nebraska deserves the opportunity to thrive in quality early child care and education. Please support LB485! 

Sincerely, 

Camera
