As Congress considers reauthorization of the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant, one key question concerns the extent of unmet need: what share of eligible low-income families and children are receiving child care assistance? Based on recently released data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), CLASP estimates that states served about 14 percent of federally-eligible children (approximately 1 out of 7) in FY 2000.
