Child care is important to children and families. Child care after a disaster is a critical part of response and recovery. Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Lead Agencies can do a lot to prepare both the early care and education system in their state, territory, or Tribal service area and child care providers through planning, training, and monitoring.

Lead Agencies can find additional emergency preparedness and disaster response and recovery resources on the Office of Child Care website.
