Authorization for the Subcabinet expired June 30, 2005, and in its place, the Governor authorized the Children's Cabinet in June 2005 (Executive Order 01.01.2005.34). The Children's Cabinet was reformed by the Governor on January 18, 2024 (Executive Order 01.01.2024.05), and authorized by statute by the General Assembly with further mandates effective July 1, 2024 (Chapter 408, Acts of 2024).

Meeting quarterly, the Children's Cabinet considers State needs for children, youth, and families.

The Children's Cabinet has eleven ex officio members. The Special Secretary of the Governor's Office for Children chairs the Cabinet (Executive Order 01.01.2024.05; Chapter 11, Acts of 2020; Code Human Services Article, sec. 8-103).
