Promising Practices in Policy for Home-Based Child Care

The document provides an overview of policies related to state definitions and regulations, licensing and subsidy, external systems, quality rating and improvement systems (QRIS), and funding. We also highlight changes to policies related to HBCC enacted as a result of COVID-19. At the end of each section, we include key takeaways and states that may be of interest for each topic. The goal of the document is to highlight states that may be strong candidates for case studies to be conducted as part of this project to further explore supportive policies in depth.
