Local Planning Council (LPC) Contacts

Banner of children with their families.

Background

The primary mission of the Local Planning Councils (LPCs) is to plan for child care and development services based on the needs of families in the local community. LPCs are intended to serve as a forum to address the child care needs of all families in the community for all types of child care, both subsidized and non-subsidized.

LPCs responsibilities include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Conduct an assessment of child care needs in the county no less than once every five years.
  • Prepare local comprehensive countywide child care plans designed to mobilize public and private resources to address identified needs.
  • Identify local funding priority areas for child care services for General Child Care and Development Programs and the State Preschool Program for new state and federal funds.
  • Conduct local forums to encourage public input in the development of local priorities.
  • Foster local partnerships with subsidized and non-subsidized providers, local and state children and families commissions, county welfare departments, human service agencies, regional centers, job training programs, employers, parent organizations, early start family resource centers, family empowerment centers on disability, local child care resource and referral programs, and other interested parties.
  • Coordinate part-day programs, including state preschool and Head Start, with other child care and development services to provide full-day child care.
  • Design a system to consolidate local child care waiting lists. (Note: Nine LPCs participated in a pilot project regarding the development of a centralized eligibility list in 2001 to 2003.)
  • Collaborate with local First Five Commission and other entities to carry out child care staff retention initiatives.

Contact information for LPC representatives in each California county can be found sorted alphabetically below. Please submit changes or corrections to LPC@dss.ca.gov.
