In September 2019, OPRE awarded eleven new Child Care Policy Research Partnership (CCPRP) Grants. The CCPRP Grant Program supports active collaborations between state Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Lead Agencies and researchers to investigate questions of immediate relevance to local and national child care policies and practices. These four-year cooperative agreements are expected to add to our knowledge about the efficacy of child care subsidy policies and quality improvement initiatives in promoting family economic self-sufficiency, low-income families’ access to high quality child care programs, and children's healthy development and learning.
