300+ organizations support the Hygiene Assistance for Families of Infants and Toddlers ActEarly Childhood Poverty & Family Economics
These 300 leading national, state, and local organizations wrote to Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) thanking them for introducing the Hygiene Assistance for Families of Infants and Toddlers Act of 2015 (H.R. 4055).
Nearly half of infants and toddlers in the United States are living in low-income families. This means that over 5 million young children are living in families that have a hard time covering the cost of their family’s basic needs, including diapers for their young children.
The Hygiene Assistance for Families of Infants and Toddlers Act would address diaper need in the United States by creating a demonstration program for distributing diapers to eligible families. States will have flexibility in developing and implementing their program. These demonstrations will reveal the best ways to help eligible families access diapers for their young children.
