How States and Territories Can Plan to Recover

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.

This brief is part of the Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery (EPRR) discussion brief series and provides CCDF Lead Agencies and those working with child care programs suggestions and considerations for planning to recover from an emergency. The brief helps to answer the following questions to allow states and territories to effectively plan for recovery:

  • What partnerships and resources can Lead Agencies put in place that help providers rebuild and reopen?
  • How can resilience and recovery services be designed to focus on affected providers and families?
  • What data are needed to support recovery planning and activities?
  • How can donations be requested, received, stored, and disbursed to support affected families, providers, and communities?
