Red light green light: State child care assistance policies 2016

Resource Type: Reports & Papers
Author(s): Schulman, Karen; Blank, Helen;
Date Issued: 2016
Publisher(s): National Women's Law Center
Description: This report examines states' policies in five key areas--income eligibility limits to qualify for child care assistance, waiting lists for child care assistance, copayments required of parents receiving child care assistance, reimbursement rates for child care providers serving families receiving child care assistance, and eligibility for child care assistance for parents searching for a job. These policies are fundamental to determining families' ability to obtain child care assistance and the extent of help that assistance provides, although other policies, too, have an impact on the effectiveness of state child care assistance programs in helping families.
