Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery (EPRR) Discussion Brief Series

The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014 requires Lead Agencies to develop state- and territory-wide child care disaster plans. These plans must demonstrate how each state and territory will address the needs of children—including the need for safe child care—before, during, and after a major disaster or emergency, including a state of emergency declared by the governor.

The Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery (EPRR) discussion brief series is provided for Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) grantees and their partners to offer guidance regarding strategies and options for consideration in the development of state and territory child care disaster plans on the following topics:

How States and Territories Can Plan to Recover How States and Territories Prepare to Support Special Populations in Emergencies and Disasters Continuation of Child Care Services: Louisiana’s Experience What Data are Needed to Support Planning, Response, and Recovery? How do States and Territories Plan for and Respond to Hostile Intruders?
