A Closer Look at Latino Access to Child Care Subsidies
The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) helps low-income parents pay for child care so that they are able to go to work or school. In 2015, 26 percent of children under the age of six were Hispanic/Latino. Latinos tend to have disproportionately high poverty rates. However, only eight percent of eligible Latino children receive assistance from CCDBG. This brief from the Center for Law and Social Policy further examines data on this population and proposes policy solutions to address this lack of access to assistance.
