  • U.S. House Representative Dan Goldman: “The childcare crisis is hurting NYC’s economy – rising childcare costs are driving young working families out of NYC.”
  • N.Y. State Senator Jessica Ramos: “To have a thriving economy that allows families to live & work in New York, we need accessible, high-quality child care. A new report out today from the 5BORO Institute lays out a roadmap to get us there, featuring my Early Learning Child Care Act.”
  • NYC Council Member Jen Gutierrez: Contributing to the 5BORO Institute study on child care was an honor, and it’s no surprise that the findings are that most New Yorkers can’t afford child care, driving young families out of the city.”
