How states and territories prepare to support special populations in emergencies and disasters

This discussion brief provides Lead Agencies and those working with child care programs with suggestions and considerations for the development of emergency plans for special populations. The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014 requires Lead Agencies to develop state- and territory-wide child care disaster plans. These plans must demonstrate how each state and territory will address the needs of children--including the need for safe child care--before, during, and after a major disaster or emergency, including a state of emergency declared by the governor. The plan must include provisions related to health and safety requirements for all providers who receive payment from the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) and requires considerations for special populations.
