Implications of Child Care and Development Block Grant reauthorization for state policies: Changes to requirements for legally unregulated child care providers

In this brief, we look at current State/Territory policies for legally unregulated home-based providers as they are addressed in the new legislation in order to understand what State/Territories are currently doing and how those policies might have to change. We discuss three broad policy areas for legally unregulated providers: criminal history background checks, health, safety, and fire inspections, and training requirements. For each policy area, we provide an overview of the federal policy, a snapshot of State/Territory policies prior to reauthorization, and a description of how the State/Territory policies will have to change to align with the new federal requirements. Finally, we provide information about additional resources for understanding State/Territory policies and reauthorization. (author abstract)
