Human Development and Family Studies Associate Professor Dr. Danielle Crosby recently published a brief with UNCG graduate student Christina Stephens and Psychology Professor Dr. Julia Mendez Smith, among others.

Its findings suggest:

That subsidy administration practices ‘on the ground’ sometimes vary from state policies as they are ‘on the books’ in ways that may exacerbate administrative exclusion and constrain low-income Hispanic parents’ access to child care assistance.

While some staff-reported practices could be considered more facilitative of access than official state policy, many staff described practices that likely create a more restrictive environment for Latino families and create administrative burden.
