Informing Parents about Child Care Subsidies. Child Care Action Campaign Issue Brief #10.
Child Care Action Campaign, New York, NY.
On December 11, 1997, the Child Care Action Campaign (CCAC) hosted an audioconference to explore the issue of how parents seeking to get off welfare can learn about subsidies available for child care in the transition from welfare to work. Presenters were Doug Baird, president of Associated Day Care Services in Boston, who discussed lessons of a Massachusetts public awareness campaign to increase child care subsidy utilization; Laurie Miller, senior program associate at CCAC, who presented findings of a three-state study of Transitional Child Care (TCC); and Carol Novrit, director of the Morris, Sussex, Warren (New Jersey) Offices of Workforce Development, who described how her office has successfully linked parents to child care subsidies and what challenges she faces in the future. After summarizing the presentations, this issue brief concludes with some tips on informing parents effectively. (EV)
