National Center on Subsidy Innovation & Accountability

The National Center on Subsidy Innovation and Accountability (NCSIA) provides technical assistance to Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) programs in developing child care subsidy systems that are child-focused, family-friendly, and fair to providers. NCSIA works with grantees to help them reach goals related to:

  • Subsidy eligibility
  • Integrating quality and subsidy
  • Strengthening program integrity
  • Payment rules and rate setting
  • Other policies and practices that support serving more low-income children in high-quality care
