Previous research on subsidy durations reveals that low-income families generally receive child care subsidies for relatively short periods of time, although reentry to the programs after an exit is common in many states (Meyers, Peck et al. 2002, Witte and Queralt 2005, Ha and Meyer 2010, Forry, Welti et al. 2012, Ros, Claessens et al. 2012). In
This report provides an examination of the length of time that low-income families receive government-funded child care subsidies that pay for part or all of the cost of their care arrangements. 1 Statistics of subsidy duration provide a description of the interval of time that families utilize subsidies and document the calendar months when they
The Welfare Indicators Act of 1994 specifies that the annual welfare indicators reports shall include analyses of families and individuals receiving assistance under three means-tested benefit programs:
CHIPRA Mandated Evaluation of the Children's Health Insurance Program: Final Findings. Experiences of Disenrollees
Most children leaving CHIP transferred to Medicaid or became uninsured; few gained private coverage. In the month after leaving CHIP, 49 percent of children across the 10 study states transferred to Medicaid, and 32 percent became uninsured (Figure VI.3). Only 18 percent of disenrollees were reported to have some form of private insurance just
CHIPRA Mandated Evaluation of the Children's Health Insurance Program: Final Findings. Duration of Coverage

Indicator 1: Degree of Dependence . This indicator focuses most closely on those individuals who meet the Advisory Board’s proposed definition of “dependence.” In addition to examining individuals with more than 50 percent of their annual family income from AFDC/TANF cash assistance, Food Stamps/SNAP, and/or SSI benefits, it shows various l
The primary data sources for this report are the Current Population Survey (CPS), the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID), and administrative data for the AFDC/TANF, SNAP, and SSI programs. Wherever possible, the current report includes updated estimates for indicators and risk factors throu
Welfare Indicators and Risk Factors: Thirteenth Report to Congress. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and Welfare Benefits
On February 13, 2009, Congress passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, ARRA (Public Law 111-5) in response to the economic crisis, often referred to “the Great Recession”. The Recovery Act had three immediate goals: create new jobs and save existing ones, spur economic activity and invest in long-term growth, and foster levels of ac
CHIPRA Mandated Evaluation of the Children's Health Insurance Program: Final Findings. Children’s Health Insurance Coverage In The CHIP Era, 1997–2012
Medicaid and CHIP coverage offset declines in employment-based coverage, fueling a substantial decline in uninsurance among children.
CHIPRA Mandated Evaluation of the Children's Health Insurance Program: Final Findings. Evaluation Design
Congress specified that states selected for the evaluation should represent varied geographic areas and urban/rural populations, diverse approaches to program design, and a large proportion of the low-income, uninsured children in the United States (CHIPRA Section 603 and BBRA 1999 Sec. 703 (c)(2)).
CHIPRA Mandated Evaluation of the Children's Health Insurance Program: Final Findings. Finding 5 (Chapter VI)
Finding 5 (Chapter VI): Most new CHIP enrollees stayed enrolled in public coverage for at least 28 months, and the vast majority exited because they were no longer eligible. Many children moved between Medicaid and CHIP; while most transitioned seamlessly, coverage gaps occurred for as many as 40 percent depending on the type of transition.
The Welfare Indicators Act of 1994 requires the Department of Health and Human Services to prepare annual reports to Congress on indicators and predictors of welfare dependence. The thirteenth report on Welfare Indicators and Risk Factors provides indicators and risk factors through 2011 for most indicators, reflecting changes that have taken pl
The assessment of potential community-level impacts of the CRRI grants was always dependent on data elements to be collected by the grantees. Union City provided youth and adult survey data, as well as community data elements, across several points in time. Lorain needed some additional support from Westat to get its community survey launched, but
Westat was awarded a contract from ASPE with funding from SAMHSA to evaluate the implementation of the initiative in all three communities. The objectives of the evaluation were threefold: First, to describe the characteristics of grantee implementation processes, including social marketing efforts, screening procedures, provision of brief interve

Estimates of Child Care Eligibility and Receipt for Fiscal Year 2011. Children Who Received Child Care Subsidies
An estimated 2.4 million children received child care services through CCDF or related government funding streams in an average month in fiscal year 2011 (see Table 1). 5 While the majority of these children, 1.6 million, received assistance through CCDF, this estimate of receipt also includes roughly 800,000 total children with subsidies funded
