Child care assistance spending and participation in 2018

This fact sheet analyzes national trends for spending and participation in CCDBG- and TANF-funded child care in federal fiscal year (FY) 2018, the latest year for which data are available. In FY 2018, federal funding for CCDBG increased by a historic $2.4 billion, the largest increase in the program's history. These funds were intended to fully fund CCDBG's 2014 reauthorization and increase access to child care assistance. However, since states have multiple years to spend funds, the impact of the increase is not fully reflected in the analysis below. (author abstract)
