Child Care and Development Block Grant Reauthorization and child care policy

President Obama signed the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014 into law on November 19, reauthorizing the federal child care program for the first time since 1996. The law will have important implications for child care policy across the United States, in areas including provider health and safety requirements, consumer education, subsidy redetermination, quality improvement, and tribal child care. The full statute and a plain language summary are available on the Office of Child Care website, along with continually-updated resources on the reauthorization. The National Women's Law Center (NWLC) has developed a chart comparing provisions in the reauthorization to those in the former law, and with the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) has released an implementation guide for states. This Topic of Interest highlights recently released resources in the Research Connections collection on current child care policies that will be affected by the law. (author abstract)
