Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG)

It’s widely known that federal child care funding is insufficient to serve every child who may be eligible for assistance. However, new CLASP analysis reveals that access varies significantly by race, ethnicity, and state.

Despite recent investments, CCDBG is still serving only a small fraction of eligible children whose parents would be able to consistently go to work or school if they had access to the program’s child care assistance. That’s why CCDBG funding should be increased by $5 billion in fiscal year 2020.

High-quality child care programs offer safe, nurturing environments where children can learn and grow. That's why the CCDBG is critical for families with low incomes.
