CDPI has a proven reputation of disseminating timely, accurate information on budget and legislative issues to thousands of professionals.
For over a decade, CDPI has advocated and lobbied on behalf of California's children and their families. Among our many notable accomplishments:
- Child Care Counts: Supporting Work Participation and Family Self-Sufficiency (Fall 2006)
- Advocating for Governor re-introduction of his $100 million targeted preschool initiative
- Continuing advocacy for California's "fair share" of federal CCDF funds
- Budget Workshops with On The Capitol Doorstep that continue to inform and educate
- Publishing CDPI and the California Performance Review, Proposals to Modify Budget Bill Provisions, and Comparison of the Governor's Budget and CDPI's Previous Proposals
- Spring Institutes that bring the latest information on the early care and education budget
- Fall Public Policy Forums that examine cutting edge issues as they potentially impact the field
Children have no political affiliation or loyalties and we believe everyone wants only the best for them. That is why CDPI's approach is bipartisan, working with members of both parties to achieve sound public policy. For instance, in 2003, when then-Governor Gray Davis proposed realigning child care programs from the state to local level, CDPI led a collaborative effort of more than a dozen groups to oppose this proposal, a group called the California Partnership for Early Care and Education. The opposition statement crafted by the California Partnership for Early Care and Education was adopted by nearly 100 other organizations.
CDPI's rich work in advocacy continues as we collaborate with state and federal leaders on making certain California receives its "fair share" of federal CCDF funds.

CDPI's Capitol Plus
As most of our readers know, the Child Development Policy Institute (CDPI) has been producing CDPI Information Bulletins for FREE for the past 16 years. CDPI's informational bulletin is distributed both federally and on the state level providing breaking news on fiscal and policy issues with timely and accurate reporting. An invaluable resource, the CDPI bulletins have kept the field informed of every breaking issue in the area of child care and development.
Over the years, we have sustained CDPI advocacy, publications and trainings by auctions, voluntary (non-deductible) contributions, and conference revenues. To continue our work and build upon its current efforts on behalf of child care and development, CDPI created a new publication, Capitol Plus in 2010. We are currently accepting subscriptions for the 2013 calendar year at a low and reasonable rate of $49.00 beginning January 1, 2013 and ending December 31, 2013. Please click on SUBSCRIBE to access Capitol Plus today! Once an issue has been released, subscribers will receive an email alert. Subscribers will then be able to access the subscription on our website. We hope that we have earned your respect and loyalty over the past 16 years and we hope you will continue to support us by subscribing to CDPI's Capitol Plus.
We appreciate your continued support.
