Combining Resources to Support Quality Out-of-School Time Programs
The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) is the largest national child care subsidy program used to support low-income families, yet these subsidies are only one part of the funding picture. In fact, more than 100 federal funding sources can be used to support out-of-school time care. Families and programs often rely on a variety of different public and private funds to make ends meet.
In this practice brief, Combining Resources to Support Quality Out-of-School Time Programs, we compare general methods for using multiple funds at the program and state levels and explore models for effectively combining CCDF with other frequently used funding sources to better support and sustain child care programs.
