For 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.
