New Brief About Licensing Caseloads and Information About a TA Opportunity

New Publication About Determining Licensing Caseloads

The National Center on Early Childhood Quality Assurance (ECQA Center) is pleased to announce a new brief—Licensing Caseloads: Finding the Right Ratio of Licensors to Providers.

Child Care and Development Fund program regulations require states and territories to ensure that the ratio of inspectors to providers is sufficient for timely inspection. We know that this ratio differs among states, territories, and tribes, depending on a variety of factors. What are these factors? How can they help you understand the right ratio of inspectors to providers in your state, territory, or tribe? How can you improve timeliness and effectiveness? We explore these questions in this brief.

You can visit the Child Care Licensing Tools and Resources webpage for more publications and tools about child care licensing from the ECQA Center.

This product was developed with funds from Grant # 90TA0002-01-00 for the Office of Head Start and Office of Child Care, Administration for Children and Families, and the Health Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
