State Use of Supplemental CCDBG funds from the CRRSA

In late December 2020, Congress passed the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, which provided $10 billion for child care. This relief funding is administered to states through the Child Care and Development Block Grant with broad flexibility over how it may be spent, similar to the CARES Act funding approved in March 2020. As with the CARES Act funding, states can support a wide range of activities with the funds. This 50-state analysis tracks how states are spending their CRRSA child care funding in 2021 and builds on previous tracking of how states spent their CARES Act funding—both CCDBG and other sources—during 2020.

States were required to submit a plan for their use of CRRSA funds to the Department of Health and Human Services by February 26, 2021. However, as of March 17, as few as 13 states and the District of Columbia had publicly released plans for allocating their funding. This is due in part to the quick timeline required under law, but also because  43 states experience some level of restriction on how they can obligate federal funding that is unanticipated, including 19 states which must receive legislative approval before spending any unanticipated funds such as those in the CRRSA. Only four of those 19 states—Iowa, Kentucky, Minnesota, and Texas—had announced plans for their supplemental funds as of March 17.

On March 24, HHS published each state’s letter describing how they plan to spend CRRSA funds. The letters included varying levels of certainty and specificity, many noting that state legislative processes would ultimately determine use of funds. Nebraska, for instance, indicated it was waiting for guidance from HHS before fully developing their plans. Each states’ plan is detailed in the map below. Additionally, the accompanying spreadsheet enumerates how many states plan to engage in certain activities. Of states with plans:

  • All but one—Alaska—intends to offer grants to providers to assist with covering costs related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Thirty states plan to use their funds to cover parent copayments.
  • Fourteen states announced they will increase subsidy reimbursement rates and 12 will offer payments based on enrollment, not attendance, both to better support providers.
  • Kansas, Missouri, and New Mexico will support investments in child care facilities, while 17 states will use funds to expand supply of child care.
  • Thirteen states will offer mental health supports
  • More than half of states will use funds to support the child care workforce .
  • Fourteen are using funds specifically to support providers who serve school-aged children.

States are also using funds in creative ways. For instance:

  • North Carolina and Kansas are purchasing clear masks for child care staff to promote safety while simultaneously ensuring children are comfortable and can learn social skills from their teachers.
  • Indiana is developing shared substitute teacher pools and helping individuals to fulfill substitute teacher requirements.
  • Louisiana will establish a microloan pilot program for child care businesses.
  • Colorado and Connecticut are supporting family child care providers through networks and navigators.
