Implications of Child Care and Development Block Grant Reauthorization for State Policies

Publication Date: April 28, 2016


These three briefs draw on the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Policies Database, a source of information on the detailed policies used to operate childcare subsidy programs under CCDF. Each brief examines selected state/territory policies that were in effect as of October 1, 2014, a month prior to the reauthorization of the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG).

The three briefs cover the following topics: changes to job search policies, changes to requirements for legally unregulated childcare providers, and changes to requirements for ongoing eligibility. Each brief provides an overview of the policy, a snapshot of state/territory policies prior to CCDBG reauthorization, and a description of how the policies will have to change to align with the new requirements.
