What If We Expanded Child Care Subsidies?

This Urban Institute report uses the Analysis of Transfers, Taxes, and Income Security (ATTIS) microsimulation model to examine potential funding expansion under the federal Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). The analysis suggests that the CCDF has enough funding for only a portion of eligible families under the program. The study identifies the potential increase in the number of families who might receive subsidies, as well as the reduction in the number of children living in poverty as more parents would be able to work and experience increases in household income.
