Care Matters: A 2024 Report Card for Policies in the States

The Century Foundation’s 2024 Care Matters Report, co-authored with Caring Across Generations, grades each state on a number of supportive family policies and worker rights and protections, such as paid sick and paid family leave, pregnant worker fairness, and the domestic worker bill of rights. The first report released in 2021 revealed tremendous gaps in state care policies and a fragmented and insufficient system of care workers and families in most states. This 2024 update looks at state progress on essential care policies over the last five years. Of note, the top five highlighted states in the 2024 report have Raising Child Care Fund grassroots partners (Oregon, Massachusetts, California, Colorado, and Minnesota).
