The COVID-19 pandemic & Austin child care centers: Impact, reaction & survival

At the request of the City of Austin and the Austin Chamber of Commerce, the University of Houston's Hobby School of Public Affairs conducted an online survey of Austin area and Travis County child care centers. The survey sought to better understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and concomitant shutdowns on the child care industry. One of the main goals of the survey is to inform the decision-making process that will ultimately determine how limited federal funds can be distributed effectively and equitably. The survey was carried out between the morning of June 25 and the morning of July 9. A total of 94 child care centers responded to the survey. The child care centers surveyed ranged from family homes to individual child care centers, to school-based programs and enrolled between three and 800 children. (author abstract)
