Military Child Care

The Military Child Care Liaison Initiative (MCCL) is funded by the Department of Defense (DoD) and is operated in partnership with Child Care Aware of America. The program is designed to expand the availability of quality, affordable community-based child care for military families.   The role of the Military Child Care Liaison is to serve as a single point of contact for DoD to collaborate with and coordinate efforts between state and local officials, National Guard, Reserves, military installations, and community partners and work with the State Quality Rating Improvement System related issues.  The primary focus on child care expansion efforts is to better serve National Guard and Reserve, geographically dispersed Active Duty families and Active Duty families who are unable to access on-installation child care programs.
