Child Care Report

Our comprehensive report outlines a 10-year plan to close the child care supply gap, improve job quality for caregivers, and enable greater labor force participation among parents.

It was critical to us to find the highest-leverage opportunities that move our region's economy forward in the coming decade. This investment blueprint highlights those strategies and points to concrete next steps. This report includes the estimated dollars needed to jumpstart each strategy. We recognize that these investments will come from multiple sources, including private investors as well as public funding at the federal, state, and local level. Read the full report to learn more.

How this Investment Blueprint can be used:

  • Align organizational strategic plans around the priority focus areas within the Blueprint

  • Utilize the Market Assessment and Data Book to inform organizational planning and funding decisions

  • Build multi-stakeholder collaboratives that focus on issue areas

  • Connect funding to do 'double duty' and extend to more clients/local community members

Community Insights Summary


Stanislaus 2030 has been designed to incorporate both data and narrative. An extensive market assessment that combined national principles and data tools for inclusive regional economic strategies was developed by the Brookings Institution, with applied research and qualitative analyses of local circumstances. At the same time, Stanislaus 2030 worked with local community engagement firm Debrief to understand the goals residents have, the challenges they face in meeting those goals and their aspirations for the Stanislaus 2030 initiative and the future.

Governance Mapping and Findings

Whether regions can deliver on their ideas and ambitions depends on effective “governance”—the formulation and execution of collective action across institutional, jurisdictional, and sectoral boundaries. Explicitly assessing governance acknowledges that achieving desired economic development outcomes depends on action beyond the direct control or resources of economic developers.
