Assessing the Economic Impact of the AOK Family Child Care Licensing Program in
AbstractFor seven years, the All Our Kin, Inc. (AOK) Child Care Licensing Program in helped address the New Haven helped address the area’s vital need for affordable, high-quality child care. CCEA prepared an economic impact study using the REMI dynamic modelling software and survey responses gathered directly from the Program’s graduates. CCEA estimated that every $1 of AOK program expense results in between $15 to $20 of macro-economic benefit. Survey data from this program's graduates shows that most experience higher incomes than before entering the Program and earn, on average, 10% higher wages than the New Haven area’s industry mean.
