Performance Improvement 2009. What Child Care Services Exist for Low-Income Households?


This project examined low-income child care after welfare reform, studying the low-income child care market in 25 communities in 17 States with a sub-study examining the family child care market in 5 neighborhoods drawn from these communities. A survey was conducted of 2,500 low-income families in the same 25 communities to determine how child care decisions are made and to study the relationship of child care subsidies to family child care choices.
