Child Care and Development Block Grant 1996-97: Statistics.
The Child Care and Development Block Grant Program (CCDBG) provides child care services for low-income families and activities to improve the overall quality and supply of child care for families in general. This report provides information on the characteristics of the children served at Arkansas CCDBG sites during 1996-97. Statistics are presented in graphs and charts for student totals by county of residence and by program type, age, female-male ratio, race, household income, disabilities, percentage parent pays, eligibility categories, and student total by site. Eligible children are those under age 13 (or up to age 19, if disabled), who reside with a family whose income does not exceed 75% of the State median income for a family of the same size, and reside with a parent who is working or attending a job-training program, or are receiving protective services.
