What Data are Needed to Support Planning, Response, and Recovery?

The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014 requires Lead Agencies to develop statewide child care disaster plans. Each state’s plan must demonstrate how the state 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.

Specific requirements for these plans include guidelines for continuation of child care subsidies and child care services, which may include the provision of emergency and temporary child care services and temporary operating standards for child care providers during and after a disaster. Lead Agencies must also describe how they will coordinate postdisaster recovery of child care services.

This brief is part of the Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery (EPRR) discussion brief series and addresses the key data that will help state and territory leaders describe the predisaster context and quantify the disaster’s impact in order to respond and calculate assistance needed for recovery, as well as which stakeholders have the data and what agreements are in place to share the data.
