Abstract: The Texas Office of the Attorney General (OAG) has partnered with the Texas
Workforce Commission (TWC) on a demonstration project referred to as the Non-custodial Parent Choices Initiative (or NCP Choices). The project links IV-D courts responsible for child support issues, OAG child support staff, and local workforce development boards to encourage workforce development of unemployed and/or underemployed non-custodial parents (NCPs) with unpaid child support orders, and whose child is either currently receiving public assistance or has previously received public assistance.

Abstract: This report on the devolution of subsidized child care in Texas examines and analyzes child care policies and program management at the state and local areas over the six-year time period under study (FYs 1998-2003). It updates state and local policy changes and statistical profiles for FY 2002 and FY 2003, and analyzes the patterns of policy changes, the role of the workforce development board, and local partnerships across the 28 local workforce development board areas. Placed in the context of the nation’s child care policy environment, the report further discusses key issues such as strategies for obtaining local funding and partnerships in the area of subsidized child care, and how state and localities have addressed the issue of quality at a time of fiscal constraint and increased need for services.
