New York Union Child Care Coalition Facilitated Enrollment Project

October 19, 2004

The goal of the child care facilitated enrollment projects is to increase working families’ access to child care subsidies by increasing income eligibility for working families to 275% of poverty ($51,838 for a family of four) and by changing the way families can apply for subsidies.  The New York Union Child Care Coalition (NYUCCC) and the project administrator, the Consortium for Worker Education (CWE) have worked collaboratively with the NYC Administration for Children Services (ACS) to develop processes that have streamlined the access and administration of child care subsidies for working families.
 
The purpose of the information presented below is to 1) report on child care facilitated enrollment progress made to date, 2) use the facilitated enrollment experience to help determine a state-wide model for increasing working families’ access to child care subsidies and increasing the income eligibility level to 275% of poverty and 3) begin to develop a strategy for achieving a state-wide model.
