#EndChildPovertyCA 2020 Movement Priorities
- The Child Poverty Tax Credit: Get families the money they need so they don’t have to choose between having a place to live, putting gas in the car, or paying for child care. Families are striving to escape extreme poverty; they know how to best spend their money; we can provide the boost for them to do it. This proposal alone, when fully implemented, will eliminate deep child poverty.
- Child Care: Improve access to child care and make sure child-care workers can afford to send their own children to preschool or daycare, because child care is a lifeline to keep parents working and families stable.
- Housing Supports: Increase overall housing availability and reduce evictions so that children and families don’t face the trauma and stress of homelessness.
- Health Care: Strengthen and expand community-based and school-based health care clinics to meet families where they are so they can get the care they need to keep them learning and working.
- Coordination of Services: Continue to improve the cost-effectiveness of programs that support families, focusing on community-based, collaborative, research-based solutions.
