Child care subsidies under the CCDF program: An overview of policy differences across states and territories as of October 1, 2015

Within the federal guidelines, States/Territories have the discretion to establish many of the detailed policies used to operate their CCDF programs. In this brief, we present some of the policy differences across the States and Territories. The policies are taken from the CCDF Policies Database, a project funded by the Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation within the Administration for Children and Families. The CCDF Policies Database tracks State/Territory policies over time, with hundreds of variables tracking policies related to: - family eligibility - application and wait list procedures - family copayments - provider reimbursement rates - other provider policies This brief serves as a companion piece to the 2015 Book of Tables, providing a graphic overview of some of the policy differences across States/Territories. We describe and present policies related to: - eligibility requirements - family application, terms of authorization, and redetermination - family payments - policies for providers Finally, we provide information about additional resources from the CCDF Policies Database.
