IECAM has updated its database to include FY2017 Child Care Assistance Program data from the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS).

The Child Care Assistance Program provides low-income, working families with access to quality, affordable child care that allows them to continue working and contributes to the healthy, emotional and social development of the child.

CCAP data available on IECAM include:

  • Number of children receiving assistance by family location
  • Number of children receiving assistance by service location
  • Number of centers and homes receiving payment

These data are available by state, county, township, IL house district, IL Senate district, US Congressional district, ISBE region, IDHS region, municipality, Unit and Elementary School District, and Chicago Community Area. Additional descriptions of data can be found on IECAM’s CCAP data description page.
