Since 2000, Entergy has been engaged in advocating for increased funding and support for early care and education — recognizing the sector as essential infrastructure and economic engine to fuel the future of communities we serve.

Working with coalition partners, we have helped generate over $477 million in funding across Louisiana and neighboring states, providing over 100,000 low-income children with access to high-quality early childhood experiences that will pay short-term and long-term dividends to our economy and society as a whole.

Simply put, we must support our working families by working to expand access to affordable, high-quality early care and education in Louisiana.
