In 1991, the United States Congress established a federal Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) through which each state was allocated funds to assist low-income families in obtaining child care and development services.
In the same year, the passing of Assembly Bill 2141 established a system of Local Child Care Planning Councils for all California counties. The membership and responsibilities of Local Child Care Planning Councils were revised in 1997 as mandated by AB 1542. As a result, Shasta County Local Child Care Planning Council was formed that same year.
