How state policies might affect Hispanic families' access to and use of Child Care and Development Fund subsidies

Description:
The authors identify potential obstacles Hispanic/Latino families may face when applying for and attempting to receive Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) subsidies. Three categories of obstacles are identified and studied: 1) documentation requirements related to minimum work requirements, 2) requests for information about households that may appear to be risky for mixed-status families, and 3) Spanish-language documentation. The authors use information found in the CCDF Policies database, the CCDF state plans for Fiscal Years 2016-2018, and the websites of the CCDF lead agencies for each state. This review focuses on the following states selected for their large Hispanic/Latino populations: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington.
