ACF Office of Child Care Disability Inclusion in Child Care

The purpose of this project is to partner with Guidehouse in partnership with the ACF Office of Child Care to design and deploy a comprehensive stakeholder engagement and program assessment strategy to support a deeper understanding of the current landscape of disability inclusion, along with unique challenges, opportunities, perspectives, and relevant factors impacting states, tribes, and territories as well as children with disabilities and their caregivers.  

Data from the discovery and design phase will be used to design, enhance, disseminate, and implement sustainable and impactful initiatives to support improvement in the availability and delivery of high-quality inclusive child care and encourage states, counties, and local governments to ensure inclusive services for children with disabilities.
