    This presentation is from the 57th National Association for Welfare Research and Statistics (NAWRS) Workshop in 2019. It provides an overview of the impacts of a diaper bank program in Connecticut. The diaper bank program, runs collaboratively through The Diaper Bank of Connecticut and the National Diaper Bank Network in connection with community-based organizations, not only improves parent and child health, but also improves access to childcare or early education programs, reduces work and school forced absences, and improves parent take-home pay.

    These PowerPoints are from the 57th National Association for Welfare Research and Statistics (NAWRS) Workshop. The presentation highlighted findings from analyses of the state policies related to Child Care and Development Block Grant. Analyses of disaggregated data provided a deeper look into racial equity in child care policy, as well. Various methodologies were used across the presentations. Stephanie Schmit from the Center of Law and Social Policy (CLASP) moderated the discussion.

    The Behavioral Interventions to Advance Self-Sufficiency project conducted randomized controlled trials of behavioral interventions at two child care agencies in Indiana and Oklahoma. This brief provides an overview of the interventions the BIAS team designed in partnership with these sites, which targeted two primary problems:

    1. Many parents who receive Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) vouchers do not select a highly rated provider, even in states that have a standardized system for rating provider quality.
    2. Some parents who are required to periodically document their continued eligibility for CCDF subsidies do not complete this process on time, which can lead to gaps in service, loss of funds for providers, and increased administrative burden for agencies.

    One-page site summaries in this brief detail the problem or problems of interest at each agency, the behavioral intervention(s) implemented to address each of those problems, and the findings from the tests of the interventions. (Author abstract)
