Council members assess child care needs at the local level and address those needs through collaborative partnerships. The Riverside County Child Care Consortium (RCCCC) does not own or operate child care programs. Instead, it provides leadership and assistance to local communities to establish child care programs. In 1992, the RCCCC was appointed as the Local Planning Council to assist with priorities for Federal Block Grant Child Development funding in Riverside County. In that capacity, the RCCCC reviews funding and makes recommendations based on identified priorities.
Founded in 1982 and incorporated in 1987, the RCCCC was initiated through funding made available by: Riverside County Board of Supervisors City of Riverside, The Press-Enterprise, Riverside Community Hospital, City of Moreno Valley, and Coachella Valley Association of Governments. RCCCC accomplishments are made possible because of community support at the city, county, state, and federal levels.
