This report provides an assessment of food and child care workforce support benefits available for families in one Central Texas community: Austin, Texas metro area. As communities design and implement plans to move families out of poverty through workforce training, a review of family supports and an awareness of the impact of income on these supports is central to understanding the experience of families pursuing economic stability. Using information gathered from relevant agency and program websites, this report identifies the available supports, estimates the impact of income increases on these supports, and the effect of tax credits on family income.
