The purpose of this project is to provide useful information for policymakers and administrators who aim to develop or fund initiatives for home-based caregivers and researchers seeking to build the knowledge base about home-based care. The project had three primary objectives: (1) to systematically gather information from existing research on home-based child care and on initiatives that aim to support these caregivers; (2) to synthesize the available evidence on home-based care; and (3) to propose next steps for designing and evaluating initiatives that aim to improve the quality of care in these settings
