Abstract:
This report focuses on the FDCH (family day-care home) component of the CACFP, and, in particular, on the household incomes of the children cared for in FDCHs. It provides a descriptive summary of FDCHs that are participating in the CACFP and the children cared for in those homes, and considers alternative proposals for targeting CACFP program funds more closely to children from low-income households.
