CGR updates child care subsidy report

Posted By on Mon, May 11, 2015 at 12:32 PM

The number of Monroe County children receiving subsidized day care decreased between 2007 and 2013, and the incomes of families receiving the subsidies are also trending downward, according to an updated analysis from the Center for Governmental Research.

CGR released its initial analysis of Monroe County child care subsidies in November, and the report identified several trends, some troubling and some encouraging.

The updated report — which is available in full at the bottom of this post — notes that poorer families are receiving subsidies in greater numbers. From 2011 to 2013, the number of families receiving subsidies who also had incomes below the federal poverty level increased by 19 percent, according to the analysis. Among families receiving subsidies, those with incomes at poverty level up to 149 percent of the threshold grew by 6 percent and the number with incomes about 150 percent of the threshold decreased by 11 percent. (Monroe County's child care subsidy cut-off is at 165 percent of the federal poverty level.)

The CGR analysis doesn't explain what's driving the shift.

The analysis and update was funded by the Rochester League of Women Voters' Beatrice Bibby Endowment.
