Are Parents with a Child Support Order More Likely to be Eligible for Both SNAP and Subsidized Child Care?

States can use social program requirements to mandate compliance with child support orders, so understanding the demographics and overlaps of benefit-eligible populations can inform policy. To disseminate data, the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation created an infographic featuring data on the number of custodial and non-custodial parents with and without child support orders who are eligible for both food assistance (SNAP) and subsidized child care (CCDF). Custodial parents without a formal child support order are the most likely to be dually eligible (17%), followed by custodial parents with an order (14%), and then noncustodial parents without an order (3%) and noncustodial parents with an order (2%).
