Sustaining family, friend, and neighbor child care beyond the pandemic: Guidance and state models


This report is a follow-up to Sustaining Family, Friend, and Neighbor Child Care During and After COVID 19: Survey Findings, which used data from a survey of FFN providers and FFN-supporting organizations to illustrate the inequitable and inadequate support that FFN caregivers received during the beginning of the pandemic. That report offered guiding principles for policymakers to take into consideration while designing child care policies to be more effective and equitable for families and providers. This report demonstrates how those guiding principles can be applied using specific examples of state strategies to support and sustain FFN child care and empower FFN providers. While most of the examples involve strategies states adopted during the pandemic, these efforts to expand support for FFN care are important—and feasible—at all times and not just in emergency situations.
