Blue Ribbon Commission on Early Childhood Education recommendation around homelessness | San Diego City and County CoC


Hello everyone,

I just wanted to make sure everyone was aware of the following in the draft CA Assembly Blue Ribbon Commission on Early Childhood Education Summary of Recommendations:

  • Page 2: 3. E. Establish a dedicated AP Emergency Services Fund for immediate access to care, expedited eligibility, and navigation, with contracted slots available for homeless families or those at risk of homelessness, resource parents, other children under supervision of CWS, parenting transitioning former foster youth, foster youth, unaccompanied minors and others applying for refugee status and families facing dislocation and crisis as a result of domestic violence.

  • Page 16: B. 7. Create an emergency child care subsidy program for victims of domestic violence, homeless, or at risk of neglect and abuse.

  • Page 28: Homeless families: Use the McKinney-Vento Act definition for children who are eligible based on their homelessness and give discretion to local agencies to include families at risk of homelessness.

Please post any thoughts or additional information under Leave a Comment or please let me know directly at San Diego CoC has been in contact with the CA Assembly Blue Ribbon Commission through the YHDP grant.
