CCDF Reauthorization

Woman playing with childOn November 19, 2014, President Obama signed into law bipartisan legislation that made many important changes to the CCDBG Act. These historic changes to the child care program focused on reforming child care in this country to better support the success of both parents and children.

In September of 2016, OCC published new rules to provide clarity to states on how to implement the law and administer the program in a way that best meets the needs of children, child care providers, and families. It has been over 18 years since HHS last issued comprehensive child care regulations and during that time, we have learned more about the impact high-quality child care can have on young children’s development and learning.
