FICC: Collaboratively Serving Young Children and Their Families

Directory Structure

About The FICC Web Site is the Federal Interagency Coordinating Council's (FICC) official web site and has been active since June 2000.

This site will provide useful information about federally funded programs for young children and their families, focusing on the efforts of the Federal Interagency Coordinating Council (FICC). The FICC works to facilitate federal, state, and local activities related to serving infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, from birth through age 5, who receive services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), as well as other federally funded programs such as health and medical care, child care, and social services.

Some highlights:

  • For parents, the Web site is user-friendly and easily navigable, offering access to people throughout the federal government who can help answer questions about children and disability issues. The site also provides a means for parents to contact and communicate with FICC parent-member representatives.

  • For states, the site showcases current federal efforts that impact state programs. States also can use this site to identify additional sources of funds and to share issues of importance with council representatives.

  • For government agencies, the Web project promotes better understanding of how each federal program helps young children and how government offices can work together collaboratively.
