Save the Children Action Network Disappointed in New Hampshire Budget which Fails to Prioritize Children and Families

Save the Children Action Network is deeply disappointed in the New Hampshire state budget, released today. The budget cuts nearly nine million dollars from the New Hampshire Child Care Scholarship Program. The budget also withdraws an amendment put forward by Senator Becky Whitley which would have provided child care providers scholarship funds based on a child’s enrollment, rather than attendance, a provision crucial as New Hampshire recovers from the pandemic, a time when child absentee rates are higher than usual.

Save the Children Applauds Introduction of the SMART Act

Save the Children is pleased to endorse the bipartisan Summer Meals Alternative Relief and Transportation (SMART) Act being introduced in Congress today by Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Cory Booker (D-NJ). The SMART Act would ensure children in rural communities and other hard-to-reach areas have access to nutritious meals during the summer months when school meals are not accessible. Currently, at the end of the school year, only 14 percent of eligible low-income children receive meals through the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), often because they cannot access meal distribution sites due to distance or lack of transportation. The SMART Act would work to address this by establishing an alternate food distribution service option, direct home delivery.
