1994 - Act (1994:553) regarding care allowance

Policy Field: 
Family & Children
Topic: 
Family Allowances
Country: 
Major Implications of the Reform: 

The childcare allowance was introduced based on the rationale that it would give parents greater choice over forms of childcare, e.g. public/private provider or a parent staying at home. The public provision is subsidised, a contribution is made for private provision, and an allowance is granted stay-at-home parents.
