Supporting working families and increasing access to high-quality child care: Voices from the field: Roundtables report

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Administration for Children and Families (ACF) focuses on finding innovative solutions to improve working families’ access to affordable, high-quality child care. ACF also investigates how access to child care affects America’s workforce, present and future. In order to inform federal policy, research, and technical assistance--and to help expand access to affordable, quality health care-- the Trump Administration committed to engaging a broad group of stakeholders and hearing directly from those providing and receiving child care services. From September through November 2019, the White House Office of Economic Initiatives partnered with ACF to plan and implement a comprehensive stakeholder engagement strategy. To gather formal input from the field, ACF issued a Request for Information (RFI) in October 2019. A critical element was speaking to those most directly impacted by child care access and affordability. To accomplish this, ACF convened a series of half-day Roundtables in ten locations across the country. (author abstract)
