LITTLE ROCK, ARK. (March 30, 2018) – Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY), an evidence-based program that works with families in the home to support parents in their critical role as their child’s first and most important teacher, applauded Congress and the president for a federal spending bill that will enhance needed educational programs for tens of thousands of children and their parents across the nation.
Last week, Congress enacted and President Trump signed the 2018 Consolidated Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2018. The act provides essential funding for many education, literacy and home visiting programs.
Key education program appropriations include:
“We appreciate our leaders in Congress and our parents and educators across the country who recognize the important need for early education for our children,” said HIPPY USA Executive Director Staci Croom-Raley. “Working hand-in-hand with parents, HIPPY is helping prepare children for success in schools. A continued commitment by our government officials will help make the difference for future generations.”
Earlier this year, Congress approved funding for the Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV) for an additional five years. This program also significantly supports HIPPY USA and home visiting programs across the country.
