Abstract

This report provides an overview of the race/ethnicity and languages of the Emergency Child Care (ECC) workforce in Oregon during the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to COVID-19 and Governor Kate Brown’s Executive Orders, child care providers were ordered to close unless they were providing Emergency Child Care. This analysis looks at the racial and language diversity of the Emergency Child Care workforce as of April 23, 2020 as well as provides a comparison to Oregon’s pre-COVID workforce.

Additional analysis was also conducted to look at the race/ethnicity and language of the Emergency Child Care workforce who received COVID relief grants from the Early Learning Division. Funding was provided for the Phase 1 and Phase 2 grants through the federal CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act.
