Identifying, Mapping, and Alleviating Child Care Deserts

This webinar defines child care deserts and explores how two organizations have developed data-driven analyses to identify where there is persistent undersupply. The data demonstrate that lack of child care disproportionately impacts rural communities, low-income communities, and Latino and American Indian and Alaska Native families. It features how states are using child care desert maps to drive advocacy and increase the supply and quality of care in these targeted areas.
