National Snapshot of Federal Supports for Afterschool and Summer Care

The Federal Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) block grant program, administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the primary source of federal funding for child care subsidies for low-income working parents and of federal funding to improve child care quality. NCASE compiled statistics on the number of school-age children served and in which settings–including centers, family child care, or in the home–to create an initial portrait of school-age care received through CCDF subsidies. This publication, A National Snapshot of Federal Supports for Afterschool and Summer Care, also documents state policies that support access and program quality.
