Equal Access Resources

Equal access is the assurance that states and territories must provide in their CCDF plans that CCDF subsidies are sufficient to ensure eligible children have the same access to child care services that are comparable to services provided to children whose parents are not eligible to receive child care assistance. These resources, along with modules on market rate surveys, provide guidance on estimating costs of care and other tools and briefings on this topic support a deeper understanding of the comprehensive approach needed to assure equal access to child care.
