OCC Director Shannon Rudisill and Tenderheart ChildCare and Preschool Founder Angie HoganEvery month an average of 1.7 million children across the United States, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Territories receive a subsidy from the Child Care and Development Fund administered by the Office of Child Care that gives low-income working families access to early care and education.

Care providers receiving CCDF funds are able to provide their own unique programming while meeting health and safety requirements set by States, Territories and Tribes. To complement the early child development experience, OCC, along with partners Nemours Foundation and Child Care Aware of America, has introduced the Let’s Move! Child Care campaign to improve the well-being of children in CCDF-funded care.
