Implications of providing child care assistance to parents in education and training [Executive summary]


This report explores the potential implications of a hypothetical policy change that makes child care assistance through the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF)—the nation’s primary child care assistance program for families with lower incomes—more available to families in which the parents are in school or training (student parents). This hypothetical policy change has three components: providing sufficient funding to serve all eligible parents who want assistance, relaxing current education and training–related eligibility constraints (including work requirements for student parents), and ensuring resources can be used to pay for the kinds of child care they need.
