The 2014 Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act has potentially large impacts on the children, families, and providers that participate in the subsidy system. The impacts are likely to be particularly salient for home-based providers and the children and families they serve due to increased requirements for some. Such is the case in Oregon where approximately six in ten children in the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) subsidy program are in home-based care and almost four in ten are in homes that have not been inspected or monitored and whose level of quality is unknown. Primary Objectives: 1. Build State capacity to assess the impact of the 2014 CCDBG Act. 2. Identify the effects of implementation of the 2014 CCDBG Act on participation in the Child Care and Development Fund program. 3. Identify the effects of Professional Development (PD)/supports related to the 2014 CCDBG Act on the quality of home based child care.
