ENDORSING ORGANIZATIONS: Veterans of Foreign Wars

Please join me in support of H.R. 5486, the Veteran Employment and Child Care Access Act. The bill improves access to child care services for veterans participating in Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) and Department of Labor (DOL) workforce and job training
programs. Senator Duckworth introduced the bill in the Senate.
H.R. 5486 will provide access to child care services to a veteran who is the primary caretaker and participates in VA or DOL workforce or job training program, such as Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E). Eligible veterans will be provided a
stipend for payment of child care at a licensed provider or receive direct provision of child care at an on-site facility at the VA, among other possible forms of childcare assistance.
If you have any questions, or would like to sign on as a cosponsor of the bill, please contact Alejandro Renteria in my office at
