Building on the promise: State initiatives to expand access to Early Head Start for young children and their families
Schumacher, Rachel, April, 2008
Washington, DC: Center for Law and Social Policy.

Congress' reauthorization of Head Start and Early Head Start in 2007, when fully funded, will present new opportunities for building on and expanding EHS that states should capture. Some states have taken action to expand and enhance Early Head Start services for infants, toddlers, and their families. This brief is an in-depth study of these state efforts, and includes an analysis of the lessons learned from state experiences and recommendations to help other states expand the reach of Early Head Start.

Ensuring quality care for low-income babies: Contracting directly with providers to expand and improve infant and toddler care
Matthews, Hannah, July, 2008
(Child Care and Early Education Series Paper No. 3). Washington, DC: Center for Law and Social Policy.

This paper explores the potential of contracts to address issues of supply and quality in the provision of infant and toddler child care. CLASP interviewed policymakers in five states to understand why and how they use contracts in their state child care subsidy programs for infant and toddler care. CLASP also interviewed representatives of contracted providers. We discussed their thoughts on whether and how contracts could be used to increase quality or supply of infant and toddler child care, as well as implementation challenges and their suggestions for policy changes that would improve the contracts approach. This paper presents the findings of these discussions and offers guidance for other states considering using contracts in this way. (author abstract)

At that time, the researchers found 20 states with some efforts to expand or enhance EHS services at the state level.
