Child Care Assistance and LIHEAP: Two Priorities for Supporting Working Families

This 2014 position paper by the Iowa Human Needs Advocates, produced by CFPC, outlines specific legislative requests in two areas:

1. Increase the income eligibility for child care assistance to 155% of the federal poverty level (with co-payments that increase as income rises) to begin to address the cliff effect and offer more children access to high-quality early-learning environments.

2. Support a $2 million LIHEAP appropriation to help low-income households to avoid disconnection from their utility provider.
