Access to Early Care and Education for Disadvantaged Families: Do Levels of Access Reflect State's Child Care Subsidy Policies?

This national study explores how low-income children's access to early childhood education might differ from their higher-income peers and how child care subsidy policies can close the gap. The study assigned states to one of five profiles based on a package of subsidy policies to produce findings about which packages provide equity in access to high quality programs.
