Description:These four-year cooperative agreements will be conducted through partnerships between CCDF lead agencies in states, territories, or tribes and researchers from institutions of higher education, research organizations, and other eligible organizations. These projects are intended to add to our knowledge about the efficacy of child care subsidy policies and quality improvement initiatives that support employment and self-sufficiency outcomes for parents, increase low-income families’ access to high quality child care programs, and promote positive learning and school readiness outcomes for children. Examples of priority questions include, but are not limited to: effects of state policy changes to subsidy reimbursement rates on families’ access to high quality care and early education for their children; effects of efforts to build the supply of high-quality care; and, effects of models to train the early childhood workforce on teacher and caregiver competencies and the quality of caregiving and instruction. The work supported by this grant program should be collaborative from start to finish. Specifically, the CCDF lead agency and their research partners need to work together throughout all phases of the project and agree to participate in a consortium of projects that will coordinate all research and evaluation activities.
