Hearing on the Reauthorization of the Child Development Associate Scholarship Assistance Act of 1985 and State Dependent Care Development Grants Act. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Human Resources of the Committee on Education and Labor. House of Representatives, One Hundred First Congress, Second Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
A hearing was held to discuss the reauthorization of the Child Development Associate Scholarship Assistance (CDASA) Act of 1985 and the State Dependent Care Development Grants (SDCDG) Act. The CDASA Act was created to provide financial assistance to low-income individuals who would otherwise be unable to afford the cost of the CDA application and assessment. The SDCDG Act authorizes funds to states for the planning, establishment, expansion, or improvement of resource and referral programs and before- and after-school child care services for school-age children. Testimony concerned: (1) areas in which improvements would help the CDA legislation achieve its full potential; (2) removal of limitations from the SDCDG Act; (3) the effectiveness of the SDCDG Act and the need for a comprehensive bill that would help subsidize children in child care; and (4) the experience of the public school system in Washington County, Maryland in implementing and using the SDCDG Act.
