Impact of Government Shutdown on Child Care and Early Education Programs
Center for Law and Social Policy, Inc. (CLASP)
Congress did not enact a continuing resolution bill by midnight September 30, 2013, thereby triggering a partial government shutdown effective October 1, 2013. October 1 began the federal fiscal year 2014. Most discretionary programs, those that are subject to the annual Congressional appropriations process, will not receive 2014 funding. Most, but not all, mandatory programs--those entitlement programs not subject to annual appropriations, including Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and Social Security--will continue unaffected. Certain programs that directly ensure public health and safety will also continue. This report discusses the impact the government shutdown will have on the following child care and early education programs: Child Care and Development Block Grants, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Head Start, Child and Adult Care Food Program, IDEA Part B, and Title I of ESEA.
