The Small Business Administration and home-based child care providers: Expanding participation


Based on expert interviews and a review of the literature, this brief provides an overview of the characteristics of HBCC providers that make accessing traditional financial supports unusually challenging for them, an overview of parts of the SBA’s services that could be relevant to HBCC providers, and steps that could be taken to help expand the extent to which HBCC providers can benefit from SBA supports. It also briefly explores areas where we need more information and discusses the implications of these findings for other financial entities that support small businesses. Box 1 summarizes the major findings. This brief is one of a series focusing on HBCC providers’ participation in federal programs and services. (author abstract)
