With exhausted and underpaid workers struggling to keep the ship afloat, the burden falls heavily on families who face exorbitant childcare crisis costs. The pandemic further exposed the flaws in the system, as one in 12 workers left the industry, leaving childcare crisis centers shuttered and parents with limited options. The Biden Administration’s latest attempt to address the childcare crisis comes in the form of proposals aimed at capping childcare payments at 7% of families’ income, eliminating co-payments for low-income families, and streamlining the distribution of funds to childcare centers.

Through utilization of the existing Child Care and Dent Block Grant (CCDBG) program, the administration seeks to provide much-needed financial support to those who need it most. The primary aim of the plan is to make childcare crisis more affordable for families, offering them a chance to regain their financial stability and enabling parents to continue working. The administration estimates that by placing a cap on co-payments at 7% of income, nearly 80,000 families could significantly reduce their childcare expenses. Additionally, there is a strong focus on streamlining the funding process for childcare crisis centers, ensuring they can operate smoothly and sustainably. These proposals are open for public comment, showcasing the administration’s dedication to addressing the pressing childcare crisis and laying a solid foundation for American families.
