HHS Announces New Diaper Distribution Pilot Program for Families in Need

☷HHS Announces New Diaper Distribution Pilot Program for Families in Need

Administration for Children and Families
| 58| 2
   Today , during Diaper Awareness Week , the U . S . Department of Health and Human Services ( HHS ) announced a new pilot program to distribute diapers to low - income families and help reduce their economic burden . As part of this new program , HHS , through the Administration for Children and Families ( ACF ) will award $8 million in funding to Community Service Block Grant state associations and tribes to provide diapers and diapering supplies to families in need through the Diaper Distribution Demonstration and Research Pilot . Seven grants will ......be awarded by ACF through its Office of Community Services’ Division of Community Discretionary and Demonstration Programs . Grant recipients will work with community action agencies , social service agencies , and local diaper banks to leverage existing community resources to assist families experiencing critical diaper needs . The new program will act as another anti - poverty tool for community action agencies and their partners , providing additional assistance to already existing wraparound services for individuals and families with low incomes . “Parents shouldn’t have to worry that their babies will go without the most basic of needs . Diapers are a crucial resource for families with babies and young children , ” noted ACF Assistant Secretary January Contreras . “For a single parent working full time at federal minimum wage , keeping one child in diapers alone can cost eight percent of the parent’s income . This program will alleviate some of the economic burden for parents and families at a time when they most need it . ”Diaper need disproportionately impacts low - income families and contributes to a cycle of poverty by preventing infants and toddlers from going to child care and preventing parents from working . One in three families in the United States do not have enough diapers to meet the needs of their babies and toddlers . Diaper support has been found to reduce economic stress , increase workforce participation , increase family income , and improve both children and caretakers’ health and wellbeing . “The diaper distribution pilot is about more than just diapers — it is about lifting a real and tangible barrier to health and well - being for low - income families and connecting those families with other programs that address the conditions and causes of poverty , ” said ACF Office of Community Services Director Dr . Lanikque Howard .
