    In this commentary collection, twelve authors - national, state, and county leaders along with research and policy experts -- offer perspectives on lessons from the first year of Work Support Strategies (WSS). WSS is a multi-state initiative to design and test cutting-edge improvements in policy, service delivery, and technology to help low-income working families get and keep the benefits for which they are eligible. Its lessons will interest local, state, and federal officials seeking to integrate health and human services programs (Medicaid, SNAP, and child care assistance); health reform experts; and others who care about programs for low-income families.

    NWLC's annual nationwide report and analysis of state child care assistance policies reveals that low-income families continue to struggle to access high-quality child care, despite some modest improvements made by states.

    The analysis, State Child Care Assistance Policies 2007: Some Steps Forward, More Progress Needed, compares child care assistance policies in 2007 to 2006 and 2001 in four key policy areas: reimbursement rates for providers, income eligibility, waiting lists for assistance and copayment requirements. States have made some progress since 2006 in the areas of income eligibility and waiting lists, the report found, but less progress was made in copayments, and almost no progress was made in reimbursement rates. Most states also continue to be behind where they were in 2001. (author abstract)

    This nationwide annual analysis by the National Women's Law Center compares child care assistance policies in 2008 to 2007 and 2001 in four policy areas: income eligibility, waiting lists for assistance, copayment requirements and reimbursement rates for providers. Some states have made progress since 2007, but most states continue to be behind where they were in 2001. The report reveals that states continue to fall short of providing low-income parents the support they need to obtain good-quality child care, despite modest gains in some areas. (author abstract)

    Year: 2006

    Parents need child care to get and keep a job and support their families. Unfortunately, many low-income families are unable to receive the child care assistance they need. This analysis of trends in four major aspects of state child care assistance policies provides a mixed picture. Some states showed improvements in certain areas between 2005 and 2006, but most states did not make up on ground lost on many policies since 2001. (author abstract)
