Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP)

The Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) develops and advocates for policies that improve the lives of low-income people. They focus on strengthening families and creating pathways to education and work. Through careful research, analysis, and effective advocacy, CLASP develops and promotes new ideas, mobilizes advocates, and directly assists governments to put in place strategies that deliver results that matter.

Alliance-Funded Support for State Advocacy

CLASP is helping state advocates, policymakers, and grassroots organizations increase access to high quality child care and early education for children in low-income families through the production and dissemination of high-quality resources and publications and the provision of expert technical assistance.

CLASP also provides technical assistance to states on implementation of CCDBG to benefit low-income children and families, reducing racial disparities in access to child care and early education and safeguarding children of immigrants’ well-being and access to early education.
