Sustaining Family, Friend, and Neighbor Child Care Beyond the Pandemic: Guidance and State Models

This report builds on previously published data on the needs of family, friend, and neighbor (FFN) care to provide recommendations to sustain this important source of care beyond the pandemic. It outlines the need to increase funding for FFN and to the community-based organizations that support them, especially for families and providers of color. It also recommends ensuring that training and supports are culturally and linguistically appropriate. Many state examples are provided.
