Do parents get child care assistance for education and training?: A look at state data

Resource Type: Other
Author(s): Gebrekristos, Semhar; Adams, Gina;
Date Issued: April, 2019
Publisher(s): Urban Institute
Description: An Urban Institute report released in 2014 examined states' CCDF policies related to education and training to understand how states were serving parents in these activities and what gaps existed in meeting these parents' needs (Adams et al. 2014). One component of the report assessed the extent to which states use the CCDF to serve families who need child care assistance to support any education and training activities. This brief updates the prior analysis and provides an overview of the proportion of families who receive CCDF subsidies, and the extent to which they receive subsidies to support education and training, in each state. The prior Urban report also examined how states treated education and training activities in their eligibility requirements for the CCDF, as these policies are set at the state level. That component of the report has also been updated in a separate brief, which provides insights into state eligibility policies (Minton et al. 2019). While a separate paper, it provides useful context for the information in this brief and how it relates to the state data presented. (author abstract)
