Is Save the Children planning to push the state to release remaining CARES dollars directly to providers?

Yes, we are working with state-based staff across the country to work at the county and state level on using CARES Act funding for kids and families.

Correct, the Child Care is Essential Act had $50 Billion. The HEREOS Act only had $7 Billion.
