The Child Care Policy Research Consortium is a national alliance of research projects sponsored by the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Consortium's purpose is to help ACF increase the national capacity for sound child care research, identify and respond to critical issues, and link child care research with policy and practice.
