Child Care Aware of America Announces CCDBG Implementation Station

We recently revisited the Child Care Development Block Grant - it's meaning and implementation as well as directed you toward resources to help you educate yourself.  

Child Care Aware of America has now announced their one-stop-shop regarding implementation of the CCDBG called the CCDBG Implementation Station.  

It is easy to navigate with informational resources ranging from their 1 pagers to webinars to partner resources.  

The most interesting and possibly most valuable part of their one stop shop is the "Office Hours and Learning Forum" which will provide you with an opportunity to speak with policy experts and peers in the same states to get technical assistance!  This launches in July so keep an eye out for this great learning opportunity.

Let us know what you think!


Samantha Marshall, M.A.

Samantha is, just like you, excited to make a difference in our community and our world. With a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, you might ask how she found herself building and writing for a website focused on child care. From 1995 through 2001, Samantha started her career working for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors which introduced her to the importance of non-profits, community and quality child care. Her experience with Sponsors, State Officials, and Family Child Care Providers left a great and lasting impression. Later in her career and her most recent position at SAGE Publications, an academic publisher, was as a product manager for a new online resource! During this time many of Samantha's passions collided. A love for the written word, children and the proliferation of knowledge as well as a fascination with the resources the internet gives us, building a community for child care on is the perfect way to make the difference she wanted to. Needless to say, she is very excited to be an active part of creating and building
