States are using the CARES Act to improve child care access during COVID-19

A new policy scan from Child Trends shows that states are using these emergency funds to improve the affordability of care and increase provider compensation. Specifically, states are: - Continuing to pay child care providers who accept subsidies during this period of closure or low attendance - Providing emergency care through temporary regulatory changes and additional funding to providers who offer care for children of essential workers - Waiving or covering a portion of child care tuition that families may otherwise be required to pay. Originally conducted in April 2020, this snapshot of state policies has been updated and is current as of June 17, 2020. It does not encompass all policy changes as a result of the emergency funding.
