What is the Child Development Training Consortium (CDTC)?
The Child Development Training Consortium (CDTC) was created in 1983 to address the critical shortage of qualified childcare workers. The CDTC provides financial support and resources to California colleges to assist students in meeting the educational requirements of any of the Child Development Permits.

Funding for scholarships
The Child Development Training Consortium is funded by the California Department of Education, Child Development division. It is funded with federal Child Care and Development Quality Improvement funds. It is funded on an annual basis; the program year is August 1 through July 31.

Rio Hondo College role with the Child Development Training Consortium
In partnership with the Child Development Training Consortium, Rio Hondo College provides eligible students (see below criteria) with a financial scholarship during the fall and spring semesters of each academic year. Students must apply each semester.
