This brief summarizes the key successes of the First 5 California (F5CA) investment in Quality Counts California (QCC). The brief begins by chronicling the historical and current contexts of QCC, including F5CA’s Improve and Maximize Programs so All Children Thrive (IMPACT). The brief then focuses on the unique aspects of IMPACT funding: (1) flexible funding, (2) funding for QCC Regional Hubs, (3) funding for data systems, and (4) efforts to promote family engagement. The unified approach to funding early learning and care (ELC), led by California’s QCC State Support Team, contributes to the successful implementation of the QCC Framework intended to achieve the desired outcomes and goals.
