Supporting immigrant providers and families through child care relief funds


The majority of children living in immigrant households are U.S. citizens. According to federal rules, eligibility for child care benefits is based on the child’s status and not that of the adults in the household. However, mixed-status immigrant families have traditionally had less access to the child care subsidy system due to obstacles including language barriers, confusion regarding eligibility rules, fear of accessing public benefits, and lack of culturally and linguistically appropriate outreach about eligibility and access. ARPA’s funding and guidance provide the opportunity to acknowledge this paradigm and disrupt these barriers.
