Persistent gaps: State child care assistance policies 2017

Resource Type: Reports & Papers
Author(s): Schulman, Karen; Blank, Helen;
Date Issued: October, 2017
Publisher(s): National Women's Law Center
Description: Given the importance of child care assistance to families, it is essential for states to have strong child care assistance policies. Under the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG), the major federal child care assistance program, states have flexibility to set policies within federal parameters. 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, payment 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. (author abstract)
