The Arizona Child Care Resource and Referral Plan.
Children's Action Alliance, Phoenix, AZ.
This document describes Arizona's 1990 child care resource and referral plan. The report consists of two parts. Part I offers an overview of child care needs in the state. It addresses the availablity, quality, and cost of child care and describes referral services for parents. Part II defines child care resource and referral (CCR&R) services. It describes a system that calls for CCR&R services throughout the state to serve all parents and refer to all forms of child care. The model of the system is discussed in terms of: (1) service delivery areas and costs related to sizing the system; (2) roles and responsibilities of the lead agency, of local CCR&R agencies, and of the Child Care Resource and Support Center; (3) service standards, such as eligibility requirements of local CCR&R agencies; and (4) accessibility standards, including fee policy. Part II also identifies core and ancillary services to be purchased by the state's Department of Economic Security (DES) through the request-for-proposal process. These services will serve families in the six DES-defined districts across the state. Appendices provide a glossary and related tables. (RH)
