The Mayor’s Fund in collaboration with ACS (the project lead agency) seeks a research partner to design and execute a study that will deepen NYC ACS’ understanding of (1) caregivers’ preferences and barriers to using ACS-issued low-income child care vouchers and (2) child care providers’ barriers to participating in the NYC’s voucher subsidy program. ACS and City partners will use the findings, recommendations, and considerations developed by the selected vendor to develop strategies to help reduce the number of children with vouchers that do not use them to enroll in care and to increase the number and type of providers that enroll to provide care to children with vouchers.
