State Advisory Council (SAC)

Vermont’s Early Childhood State Advisory Council is the state’s Governor-appointed, primary advisory body on the well-being of children prenatal through age 8 and their families. Building Bright Futures serves as Vermont’s Early Childhood State Advisory Council (SAC) to inform the Governor, Administration, and Legislature on policy and systems improvements for children and their families.

The SAC brings together early childhood leaders and decision-makers from across sectors to better coordinate and enhance services for young children. The SAC does this in partnership with BBF’s Early Childhood State Advisory Council Network, which includes 12 Regional Councils and 7 VECAP Committees.

The SAC identifies early childhood policy priorities the strategic direction for statewide initiatives each year and develops annual recommendations around these priorities, using the VECAP and up-to-date data. Learn more about the 2023 Policy Recommendations.
