December 9, 2021

Children’s Law Center Senior Policy Attorney Tami Weerasingha-Cote submitted testimony expressing our support of the Grandparent and Close Relative Caregivers Program Amendment Act of 2021. As long-time advocates for the Grandparent and Close Relative Caregivers Program, we applaud CFSA and the DC Council for their joint work to put these amendments in place and increase access to caregiver subsidies as quickly as possible. We look forward to the enactment of this amendment and the positive change it will
have in the community.
