Partnership with Child Care Aware of America
From 2016 - 2018, Minnesota was one of three states selected to receive a Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies as Resilience Hubs grant from Child Care Aware® of America as part of a pilot project to support emergency preparedness efforts.
The pilot project also coincided with efforts at the state level to create a child care emergency plan. The new plan addresses administering temporary child care services during and after a disaster, and temporary operating, health, safety, and licensing standards.
The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) requires all Minnesota licensed child care programs to complete a Child Care Emergency Plan. Find out more using the following resources:
