Under the Family Support Act, federal-state policy calls for subsidizing the child care of families who are trying to make it from welfare into the labor force. In order to facilitate this transition, the government empowers these families financially to be competitive in finding and purchasing child care in the local community where they live and work. This is done by pegging the subsidy at the 75th percentile of prices found in the community based on a survey of child care rates.
