How Policymakers Can Use the Stimulus to Support Young Immigrant Children

In another new report by CLASP called "Ten Policies to Improve Access to Quality Child Care for Children in Immigrant Families" opportunities through the Stimulus and other resources are outlined.
With the $2 billion in funding for the Child Care and Development Block Grant.(CCDBG) included in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), states can immediately implement policies that will simultaneously improve their economies and improve access to quality child care and child care assistance for children in immigrant families. State policymakers should also consider linkages to other expansions in Head Start, Early Head Start, IDEA, and Title I to connect immigrant families to necessary programs and services.
For more stimulus strategies to support a "two generation" approach to child development and economic opportunity.
