New research on subsidized family, friend and neighbor providers: Implications for investing in quality

As recently as 2011, 32,000 FFN providers participated in the child care subsidy program in Cook County at some point during the year. In FY2018, that number declined to 12,300. In this brief, we analyze a wealth of subsidy data on these providers, including provider and child demographic characteristics and their spells in the subsidy program. We also report on qualitative data collected from IAFC staff who have been assisting FFN providers in understanding and meeting the new Health and Safety requirements. (author abstract)
