How Michigan’s child care assistance program compares


The Child Development and Care (CDC) program provides eligible families with child care assistance. This program is administered in Michigan through the Michigan Department of Education/Office of Great Start (MDE/OGS), with assistance from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), which determines eligibility. Public Policy Associates, Inc. (PPA) was awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services/Administration for Children and Families in fall 2019 to conduct research into the effects of CDC program policy changes in Michigan. The degree of variety among states in their structural approaches to the CDC can affect the access to quality child care for families. This issue brief benchmarks Michigan against other states on four structural program aspects: (1) income eligibility, (2) renewal, (3) funding model, and (4) how provider payment rates are defined.
