Draft CCDF Quality Expenditure Plan for FY 2017–18 - Legislative ReportReport on the Draft Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Quality Expenditure Plan for fiscal year (FY) 2017–18.
Submission of this plan is required by Item 6100-194-0890, Provision 7(e) of the Budget Act of 2016 (Senate Bill 826). The California Department of Education (CDE) is required, on or before February 1, 2017, to provide a draft of the new Quality Expenditure Plan to the Department of Finance and the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee for review and comment.
The CDE Early Education and Support Division (EESD) (now known as the Early Learning and Care Division [ELCD]) conducted two stakeholder input sessions on the state quality improvement expenditure plan for its federal Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Fund requirement.
The Quality Expenditure Plan for 2017–18 removes the one-time funding, leaving a remaining balance of $78,084,000 to support required quality improvement expenditures for child care resource and referral (R&R) services, local planning councils, and child care licensing to support a local Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) provided in the 2016–17 state budget, to support professional development for the early care and education workforce, and to support other activities identified in the CCDBG. It supports longstanding workforce infrastructure projects such as the Child Development Training Consortium and the Program for Infant/Toddler Care. It reduces several projects and eliminates one project to provide a little over 40 percent of the funds previously provided in one-time state general funds for an Infant/Toddler QRIS Block Grant.
If you have any questions or comments regarding this plan, please contact the Early Learning and Care Division, by phone at 916-322-6233 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
