CCR&R services are available in each of North Carolina’s 100 counties. Counties are grouped into 14 distinct regions and each region’s CCR&R services are overseen by a Regional CCR&R Lead Agency. Services are delivered through these Regional Lead Agencies and additional local service providers based in individual counties with whom Regional Lead Agencies contract. Overall, there are about 70 CCR&R agencies serving North Carolina’s diverse families, child care programs, professional workforce and communities. These agencies all provide the “core” CCR&R services of consumer education and referral, professional development, technical assistance, data collection and analysis and public awareness. Many also administer child care subsidies, the Child and Adult Care Food Program, and employer supported initiatives. Services are primarily funded through the NC Division of Child Development & Early Education, Smart Start, and other private foundations and corporations.
