Integrating workforce and child care systems and promoting sustainability


Grantees faced challenges in their efforts to create and sustain systems change. Connecting the child care and workforce development systems required establishing new partnerships and progress sometimes stalled due to organizational change and staff turnover. Most grantees focused on systems integration to meet SWFI programmatic needs and began working on sustainability efforts in earnest later in their grants. Still, grantees made some progress in their efforts to build more permanent change in their communities. In this brief, we share strategies and lessons learned from grantees’ efforts to integrate local workforce and child care systems during their grant and to sustain that integration.
