Infants and Toddlers in CCDBG: 2009 Update
Matthews, Hannah; Lim, Teresa
Center for Law and Social Policy, Inc. (CLASP)
The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) is the primary source of federal funding for child care subsidies for low-income working families and to improve child care quality. CCDBG provides child care assistance to children from birth to age 13. In fiscal year 2010, states received $5 billion in federal CCDBG funds. States are expected to contribute an additional $2.2 billion to draw down all federal funds. This fact sheet highlights key information about school-age children and CCDBG. These information include: (1) Fewer than a third of children served in CCDBG are under the age of 3; (2) More than half of infants and toddlers in CCDBG are cared for in center-based settings; (3) The CCDBG infant/toddler earmark funds a range of services; and (4) Funds earmarked for infants and toddlers comprise a small portion of CCDBG spending. (Contains 2 figures, 1 table, and 7 endnotes.)
