Consumer Education: Information about Provider Monitoring and Oversight
This issue brief includes an overview of the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014 (CCDBG Act of 2014) requirements specific to consumer education and how States share provider-specific information; aggregate information about deaths, serious injuries, and abuse; and information about State licensing processes. It includes a table that contains information on the content of five States’ reports: which providers are included in the search function; whether inspection dates, corrective actions, and information about licensing and enforcement processes are provided; and other notable features. Information is also provided about how States are currently sharing licensing and monitoring data. This is one of a series of four issue briefs that address CCDBG Act of 2014 requirements and provide state examples and links to state Web sites that can serve as examples for States and Territories in enhancing their own consumer education efforts.
