Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Lead Agencies are encouraged to coordinate the delivery of child care/early childhood and school-age services.

Coordination activities with other entities, such as agencies responsible for licensing, child welfare, the Head Start Collaboration Grants, and the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) are optional. This quick facts document provides counts of coordination activities reported by CCDF Lead Agencies in section 1.5.1 of the CCDF Plans for FY 2012-2013.

Quick facts: State/territory coordination plans and designated coordination entities
Child Care State Systems Specialist Network, September, 2012
Fairfax, VA: Child Care State Systems Specialist Network.

Early childhood/school-age coordination plans and designated entities responsible for program coordination within a State/Territory can help Child Care and Development (CCDF) Lead Agencies better coordinate funds and service delivery. Early childhood/school-age coordination plans can help CCDF Lead Agencies fulfill requirements of other programs, while helping stakeholders identify gaps and implement solutions to promote healthy child development. Coordination plans can also be useful tools for driving public policy in the State/Territory. Designated coordination entities can further support CCDF Lead Agencies' efforts of building comprehensive early childhood systems, by encouraging collaboration from a wide array of programs and services in the State/Territory. Coordination entities can facilitate public awareness, including support, by encouraging more public and legislative engagement. These entities can also help establish defined goals to achieve policy change. This quick facts document provides an overview and counts of States/Territories that have early childhood/school-age coordination plans and/or designated coordination entities. (author abstract)
