Balancing act: The financial challenges of child care facing Louisiana's working families

The Louisiana Policy Institute for Children, in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Education, conducted a survey of families on the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) waiting list in September 2019. The survey asked families about the impact that not receiving child care assistance has had on parent employment, education, or job training; affordability, availability, reliability, and quality of the child care they are accessing; stress related to finding child care; and household budget and living expenses Results from the survey show the significant challenges facing working families who must balance the care and education of their children with their other basic needs.
