  15. State child care subsidy Question: How does the state subsidy system for childcare work? What challenges or benefits have families and providers seen?

  16. Subsidies: Documents and data • State monthly reports on child care assistance • Block grant applications sent to the federal government • Data on child care providers in Boone County requested from DSS • Memos

  17. Childcare providers in Columbia said difficulties with the application process for the state’s assistance for child care make it difficult for parents to get the assistance needed to work or go to school. Parents can face long wait times for approval, lost paperwork and a time-consuming application process. “The system just isn’t working. It’s broken for most of the families,” said Paul Prevo, director of Tiger Tots Child Development Center... “Who doesn’t want the parents to be able to take their kids to school, go to work, be a functioning member of society in every way that you can imagine? That should be everyone’s goal,” Prevo said. “When it takes 30 or 45 days to get approval, that’s hindering that goal pretty harshly.”
