The Office of Child Care has reopened the comment period for the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (78 FR 29441).
On Aug. 13, a notice was published in the Federal Register to formally reopen the comment period for 10 days. Public comments on the proposed rule are due by 11:59 p.m. (eastern daylight time) on Friday, Aug. 23.
Comments can be submitted electronically by visiting the Federal Register Web site link below, or you can submit written comments to the following address: Office of Child Care; Aerospace Building, Fifth Floor East; 370 L’Enfant Promenade, S.W.; Washington, DC 20024; Attention: Cheryl Vincent, Office of Child Care.
To view the Federal Register notice and to submit comments, visit the following Web site: https://federalregister.gov/a/2013-19704.
The website for submitting public comments on the CCDF proposed rule was intermittently unavailable for several days prior to the original closing date for the comment period, and many commenters reported difficulty in submitting comments using this mechanism. To ensure that all interested parties have an opportunity to comment on the proposed rule, we have decided to reopen the comment period.
Please note that all comments previously received by OCC—whether submitted through e-mail or mail or on regulations.gov—are accessible for the public to view on the Web site link above. If you have previously submitted comments, we strongly encourage you to check the Web site to confirm that your comments were received. Please do not resubmit comments that have already been posted.
OCC greatly values your comments and appreciates your patience. If you have further questions, please contact Cheryl Vincent at (202) 205-7050.
