Work of the Children's Policy Council

The county councils review the needs of children in their counties and how local agencies and departments can work together more efficiently and effectively to serve the children in their area.  These local teams submit an annual report to the Department of Children's Affairs by July 1 of each year on local services provided to children, local needs of children, and recommendations of the county children's policy council based on data from the previous fiscal year ending September 30.  These local resource guides shall be used by the State Children's Policy Council in compiling a state resource guide which is distributed to the general public and to agencies and organizations serving children.
