Reinvesting in Child Care: Access for Immigrant Families
Ten Policies to Improve Access to Quality Child Care for Children in Immigrant Families is the latest paper in CLASP's "Reinvesting in Child Care" series. It provides policy options states can implement to simultaneously improve their economies and access to quality child care and child care assistance for immigrant families. Children with foreign-born parents are the largest growing segment of the child population; yet, these children are less likely to access child care and early education settings.
CLASP's Reinvesting in Child Care website page is dedicated to economic recovery and includes general information on the Economic Recovery Act, including implementation guidance and fact sheets for policymakers and advocates. We will be updating this page with additional resources as they become available.
