Tribal Child Care Association of California

About Us

The Tribal Child Care Association (TCCAC) is comprised of individuals who work for tribal lead agencies/grantees administering the Child Care and Development Block Grant and /or other Tribal child development programs. 

Tribal Child Care and Development Fund dollars reach 80% of the Federally Recognized Tribes in California providing services to families, children, and communities on tribal land and in urban areas. Child Care services are provided through Child Care Centers operated on tribal land by regulated family, friend, and neighbor care, and through private and not for profit child care facilities licensed through the State of California

The TCCAC has joined together to provide professional support and technical assistance to Tribes with child care programs and to unify tribal voices to educate Tribal, federal, state, and local governments and agencies as to the strength and existence of tribal child care programs.
