PCCY launches the “1% More for Kids Campaign” to urge Philadelphia Mayoral candidates to commit an additional 1% of the City’s budget (about $35 million at the time) to programming for children and families. Both Mayoral candidates express support for the idea, and it happens.

Pre-K Counts

With the guidance and advocacy of PCCY, Pennsylvania creates the Pre-K Counts program to provide high-quality, publicly funded pre-kindergarten to 11,000 3- and 4-year-olds.
