Estimates of Child Care Eligibility and Receipt for Fiscal Year 2011. Children Who Received Child Care Subsidies


Approximately 29 percent of all children eligible under state-defined rules received subsidized care through CCDF or related government funding streams in fiscal year 2011 (see Figures 5a and 5b). As was the case when considering federally-eligible children, children eligible for assistance under state-defined rules who were between the ages of 1 and 4 (45 percent of children ages 1-2 and 51 percent of children ages 3-4) or from families with incomes below poverty (41 percent of all eligible children from families with incomes below 100 percent of poverty) were the most likely to be served.
