Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparedness plans help ensure child care programs and staff are prepared to react in a manner that protects the safety of children and staff when an emergency occurs. Emergency plans also establish mechanisms to help programs during the recovery phase and get businesses “up and running” as soon as possible, which promotes continuity of care and reduces the risks of clientele and income loss.

State Systems Resource Guide

The OCC Systems Building Resource Guide is designed to provide an overview of key system-building issues to support Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) State Administrators (SAs) in pursuing system-building initiatives.

CCDF Fundamentals

The CCDF Fundamentals resource provides information on the CCDF program which provides funds to States, Territories, and Tribes to assist low-income families, families receiving temporary public assistance, and those transitioning from public assistance in obtaining child care so they can work or attend education/training programs.

State Profiles

The state profiles include demographic information about the children, families and child care in each state, as well as contact information for the state agencies involved in child care. The profiles also contain links to additional state and national resources.
