There are zero states in the United States able to provide child care assistance to the majority of families who need it.
The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) is the primary federal funding source for child care subsidies to help eligible low-income and working families access child care and to improve the quality of child care for all children.
What is CCDBG?
The need for Child Care funding
Percentage of eligible young children served
How the state will use funds
Percentage of children under 6 with all available parents in the workforce
