Money for Migrant Children: A Compilation of Federal Funding Sources for the Children of America's Seasonal Farm Workers.
Funding sources for migrant child care programs and their various components, such as services, personnel, food, equipment, and some Federal child care legislation bills, are given in this publication. The programs are grouped into the various agencies and departments of the Federal government which help fund them (i.e., the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare; the Department of Labor; the Office of Economic Opportunity; the Department of Agriculture; the Department of Housing and Urban Development; and Vista). A brief description of each program is included. The Title IV-A of the Social Security Act is discussed; in this program, the Federal government pays 75% of the costs and the States pay 25% of the costs. Examples of how Washington, Minnesota, California, Arizona, Oregon, Texas, and Iowa have obtained Title IV-A money are given. A list of follow-up contacts and samples of contracts are appended. (NQ)
