As you know last year the Governor signed a budget that (among many other things) will transfer many child care and development programs to the California Department of Social Services (CDSS). This includes the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and is set to become effective on July 1, 2021.
The transition is still moving along and still set to occur on July 1, 2021. We don't have any CACFP specific updates for you. Things for you to know:
CDSS is having their quarterly stakeholder call on January 28th. You can sign up for that here.
February 2 is the Child Care Transition Plan Listening session. You can sign up for that here.
CDSS published their quarterly progress report. Find that here.
Representatives from CDE and CDSS will be joining us at our CACFP Town Hall on January 21. Register here.
The CDSS Transition website can be found here.
We'll be sure to keep you posted but join the stakeholder phone calls and listening sessions to ensure your CACFP concerns, needs or recommendations are heard.
