ACF Family Room Blog: Engaging States and Communities to Support Working Families

This Administration for Children and Families (ACF) blogpost, published by the Deputy Secretary for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, summarizes findings of roundtables that have occurred across the country covering how to improve access to affordable, high-quality child care and offers opportunities for additional input with a Request for Information. The blogpost also discusses the economic impact of child care and innovations at the state and local level to include increased subsidy rates for child care providers, reduced waiting lists for child care subsidies, qualified professional development for child care providers, and shared service models to support family child care providers that colocate housing and early learning facilities.
