The Job Opportunities and Basic Skills Training Program and Child Care: Initial State Developments

Abstract

In enacting the Job Opportunities and Basic Skills Training program (JOBS), Congress recognized that the participation of many mothers with young children would depend on child care. In this article, we consider how 10 states initially responded to the child-care provisions of the legislation. Although many state administrators perceived both the supply and funding of child care as adequate at the time of the study, most viewed child care as a quasi entitlement, available as long as state funding allowed. Not surprisingly, limited state funding for child care has already resulted in restricted access to the JOBS program and to child-care support for other low-income, nonAid to Families with Dependent Children families.
