Ewen, Danielle; Goldstein, Anne
This report provides an overview of the activities funded in 1994 by states using funds available for quality improvement and supply building in the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG). Information on the activities was obtained through mail surveys conducted by the National Child Care Information Center with 45 states and territories responding. Selected descriptions of funded projects are provided--with the grant amount where available--in each of nine topic areas: (1) systems of professional development; (2) child care resource and referral agencies; (3) consumer education and support of families; (4) support of licensing; (5) development of family child care networks; (6) state certification of quality programs; (7) programs for teen parents; (8) community coordinators and interagency facilitators; and (9) leveraging funds. Following the topic descriptions, there is a synopsis of the activities funded through the CCDBG quality improvement funds. Contains 23 references (called "Resources") and a list of block grant administrators. (KDFB)
