PFCCA of GA Public Policy 

The purpose of the Public Policy Committee is to serve as a strong voice for the needs and concerns of family child care learning homes in GA.  The committee works with the board to determine priorities.  We research issues, document problems facing providers, survey providers to determine their concerns and seek their ideas for addressing these concerns, monitor DECAL and other state/federal agencies to evaluate policies and programs which effect providers, propose strategies to bring about needed change and inform members about issues and ways they can influence public policy.


Currently the board has established nine issue priorities which the committee is working on. They are:

  1. Licensing Standards and Practices
  2. Factors Reducing the Supply of Family Child Care
  3. Role of Family Child Care in DECAL & Federal Programs
  4. Local Restrictions Preventing or Limiting Family Child Care
  5. CAPS Policies and Operation
  6. Insurance
  7. Reducing Provider Vacancies
  8. Quality Rated and Other Improvement Activities
  9. Child and Adult Care Food Program
  10. Jury Exemption for Licensed Providers
