Effective January 1, 2015, the tax credit was fully restored. Nevertheless, the effects of the legislative “trigger” created a loss of millions of dollars to the early childhood provider community during the tax years 2011-2014. In an effort to re-introduce the Colorado public to its existence, as well as the importance, of CCTC, Executives Partnering to Invest in Children (EPIC) has agreed to facilitate a coalition (the “Coalition”) of business, community and government leaders with the goal to bring taxpayer contributions back to pre-recession levels.
The sole purpose of the Coalition is to develop and execute a public awareness campaign highlighting the benefits of this public/private mechanism promoting quality child care programs in Colorado. There are no other organizations focusing on the renewal of public contributions to child care facilities qualifying for CCTC.
