Importance of C3 Continuation for the Commonwealth

MTF’s latest chartbook, The Importance of Commonwealth Cares for Children, provides a comprehensive overview of this critical new childcare program, including:

  • A history of the program and its purpose;
  • An overview of funding history;
  • A breakdown of how the grant formula works for providers; and
  • Key data points showing on the impact of the program.

The presentation also shares information on recent changes announced by EEC, that will go into effect for the end of the fiscal year. The chartbook demonstrates how instrumental C3 has been in improving the stability of childcare funding, while enhancing funding equity and predictability. The chartbook is intended as tool to inform policymakers and stakeholders on the importance of the program.
