Early Ed Programs See Funding Increases in Obama’s Budget

President Barack Obama’s budget proposal for 2016-17 promises more support for early childhood programs, including increased funding for child care and preschools.

The budget includes $1.3 billion toward the president’s goal of ensuring that all low-income 4-year-olds in the nation have access to high-quality preschool programs. The Preschool for All initiative would be funded by increases in tobacco taxes.
