    The presentation provides an overview of variations in state Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) policies for families receiving other benefit assistance, and demonstrates use of the Transfer Income Model, v3 (TRIM3) -- a microsimulation model that simulates major government transfer, tax, and health insurance programs -- to estimate the combined impact of alternate public benefit policies on CCDF eligibility.

    This presentation was given at the 2014 National Association of Welfare Research and Statistics (NAWRS) Annual Workshop.

    State child care policies can promote the quality and continuity of early childhood experiences and foster the healthy growth and development of babies and toddlers in all child care settings, especially if they are informed by research. The quality of the relationship between children and those who care for them influences every aspect of young children’s development, including intelligence, language, emotions, and social competence. Research has found that children in both child care centers and family child care homes benefit when their providers are sensitive and responsive to their individual needs. Moreover, a secure attachment relationship between infants and their child care providers can complement the relationship between parents and young children.

    The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) is the largest source of federal funding for child care available to states and touches the lives of many low-income infants and toddlers and their families. Twenty-nine percent of children who receive child care paid with CCDBG funds are under age 3—nearly 500,000...

Moreover, a secure attachment relationship between infants and their child care providers can complement the relationship between parents and young children.

    The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) is the largest source of federal funding for child care available to states and touches the lives of many low-income infants and toddlers and their families. Twenty-nine percent of children who receive child care paid with CCDBG funds are under age 3—nearly 500,000 children in an average month in fiscal year 2007. The infant/toddler earmark in CCDBG, $99.5 million in fiscal year 2009, is an important source of funding for many innovative state investments to improve the supply of high-quality infant/toddler child care, and supports programs and initiatives for children and families who receive a subsidy and those who do not. Every two years, states must lay out their plans for using CCDBG funds to help low-income families access child care to improve the quality of child care for all children, including infants and toddlers. What do state CCDBG plans reveal about state policies that can promote opportunities for babies and toddlers in child care to experience the positive care that will help them thrive?
