The 2014 reauthorization of the Child Care and Development Block Grant will change how states and territories provide child care subsidies to low-income families. Before reauthorization, most states and territories provided some level of job search eligibility. Now, states and territories that didn’t allow this type of eligibility will have to add it, and states and territories that allowed some eligibility for job search may have to make changes to comply with the new law. This brief describes state and territory policies for job search before reauthorization and how those policies will have to change in the coming years.
