- Over the years PCCY has successfully worked to increase public investment in children and youth. Early childhood education, good schools for students from K-12, CHIP and Cover All Kids (health insurance programs) -- these are just a few of the programs that rely on public funds to improve kids' lives. This page details some of PCCY's work to preserve public spending for kids and to expand public investment on their behalf.

Pennsylvania 2013-2014 Proposed Budget for Early Care and Education
Posted February 5, 2013
On February 5, 2013, Governor Corbett announced his proposed budget for 2013-14. Unfortunately, there was mostly bad news for kids. While some small spending increases are proposed, state support for our children lags well behind the level of demand. And in many areas – such as basic education and early learning – funding remains significantly below the budget that was in place when the Governor took office. Our children – and Pennsylvania’s economy – need more than a status quo budget in order to grow.
Below, is our summary analysis with one document looking specifically at the impact on Philadelphia and another looking at the impact to the region.
