2018 QRIS National Meeting

102. Seize the Day for Babies! CCDBG and Its Opportunities for Infants, Toddlers, and the Providers Who Love Them

Date: Tuesday July 17, 2018
Time: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: Marina 3

The federal Child Care and Development Block Grant is expanding substantially. Seventy percent of the CCDBG investment must be used by the states to support child care assistance (a.k.a. child care subsidy). We will dive into strategies in child care assistance to provide equitable access to quality infant and toddler child care, looking at child care assistance through two lenses: equitable access to quality for families with babies and toddlers, and supporting infant/toddler provider quality through strategies such as improved payments to providers serving babies and toddlers who are committed to advancing high quality. We will explore how state policies and practices can support this work. 

This session made possible through the generous support of the JB & MK Pritzker Family Foundation Children’s Initiative. 

Presenters: Christine Johnson Staub, CLASP; Harriet Dichter and Debi Mathias, BUILD Initiative; Yvette Sanchez Fuentes, Child Care Aware of America
