  • AB 212 Child Development Staff Retention Funds
    Funds are provided to Child Care and Local Development Planning Councils (LPCs) for child care staff retention activities to retain qualified staffs who work directly with children in EESD-contracted centers or family child care home education networks. The LPCs develop countywide plans in accordance with approved guidelines and submit these plans to the EESD for review and approval. The funds are intended to supplement, not supplant, existing efforts and investments to retain qualified child care staff at the local level. There are currently LPCs representing each county in California. (See Education Code, Chapter 2.3, Article 1, Section 8499 and Article 2, Sections 8499.3, 8499.5 and 8499.7.)
