Child Care State Reports . Child Care in Pennsylvania: A Short Report on Subsidies, Affordability, and Supply


This report summarizes recent child care information for the state of Pennsylvania.  The first section provides new information on child care subsidies, based on eligibility estimates generated by the Urban Institute and state administrative data reported to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  The second two parts, on affordability and supply, draw on state and local data collected by the Urban Institute during the summer of 1999 under contract with HHS.  A companion document to the national report entitled "Access to Child Care for Low-Income Working Families," the Pennsylvania report is one in a series of nine state reports.  [The other reports are:  California, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Louisiana, Michigan, Texas, and Utah]
