Federal, National, and State Reports on Licensing and Differential Monitoring

Attached are several examples of Federal, national, and state reports on state of the art licensing and differential monitoring initiatives. These reports have helped to shape the research efforts as we move forward with licensing and differential monitoring in early care and education.

Several Federal agencies are well represented, such as the Office of Child Care, the Administration for Children and Families, Health and Human Services, USDA, Assistant Secretary’s Office for Planning and Evaluation, Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation; National Organizations, such as the National Association for Regulatory Administration, National Women’s Law Center, CLASP, BUILD, Child Care and Early Education Policy and Research Analysis, and Child Trends; and states, such as Ohio, Minnesota and Illinois.
