Efficient and Effective Monitoring in Licensing Peer Learning Group

The BUILD Initiative – QRIS National Learning Network, NECQAC – National Early Childhood Quality Assurance Center, and NARA- National Association for Regulatory Administration have collaborated on the development and implementation of a major initiative with ten states dealing with more efficient and effective monitoring in licensing.

Please see the following HHS/ACF Office of Child Care website (2017 Efficient and Effective Monitoring in Licensing Peer Learning Group) for the details of this innovative Peer Learning Group.  Ten states (Alabama, Delaware, District of Columbia, Indiana, Iowa, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Texas, and West Virginia) participated in the Peer Learning Group and the series of webinars have produced several significant resources.  I would highly recommend this webinar series for other states, other human services, and other jurisdictions to take a look at this innovative approach to monitoring in licensing.  The webinars really do move the human services licensing and monitoring fields forward in so many positive ways.
