March 23, 2022
On March 22, 2022, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott (R), introduced The Child Care and Development Block Grant Reauthorization Act of 2022. Following months of Congressional and public debate on the Biden administration’s proposed Build Back Better Act, the bill is the most significant Republican counter proposal to address the needs of America’s families and child care providers.
To assist policymakers and the public with understanding the bill’s content and likely impacts, The Hunt Institute has released The Child Care and Development Block Grant Reauthorization Act of 2022: A Guide for Policymakers which condenses 43 pages of pertinent bill language into three pages of helpful question and answer-style summary.
Readers should note that this proposal has not been enacted, is under active debate, and that modifications are likely. The Hunt Institute will update this document as necessary to reflect significant amendments if/as the bill advances through the legislative process.
