CCAC Family Support Watch Audioconference Series: Summary of Proceedings (April-September 1993).
Collins, Ann; Weissman, Joanna
This report summarizes four audioconferences held in the spring and summer of 1993 by the Child Care Action Coalition (CCAC) to address the implication of the Family Support Act (FSA) of 1988. The FSA was designed to reduce welfare costs by providing training, education, and child care to recipients of Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) so that they can become employed and self-sufficient. The first audioconference focused on recent FSA litigation, specifically lawsuits filed against California, Illinois, and Massachusetts to require the states to follow FSA mandates on child care provision. The second conference addressed state efforts to improve the Transitional Child Care (TCC) component of the FSA, while the third focused on current federal welfare reform initiatives under consideration by the Clinton Administration. The fourth conference looked at two state models using FSA funding in programs that provide comprehensive services to families in job programs. The names, addresses, affiliations, and telephone numbers of the audioconference speakers and participants are included. (MDM)
