CCDF Plans

Every two years, states, territories and tribes receiving CCDF funds submit a Child Care and Development Fund Plan for what they will do with the CCDF funds they are awarded. The Plan serves as the application for CCDF funds by providing a description of, and assurance about, the grantee’s child care program and all services available to eligible families. The Office of Child Care reviews the Plans for approval. If they are approved, funds are awarded and the Plans go into effect on Oct. 1 of every even-numbered federal fiscal year.

State/Territory and Tribal Plans

The Plan is the form that states fill out to complete their applications for funding/CCDF plans. The questions cover many topics, including program subsidy administration and quality improvement activities.

Plans as Approved by Office of Child Care

In the summer of 2011, 260 grantees submitted plans for what they would do with their CCDF money for fiscal years 2012 and 2013. The OCC has made these plans available for viewing.

Summary of CCDF Plans

OCC is working with our new Technical Assistance Centers to summarize the 2012-2013 CCDF plans. We hope to have this addition to our website soon.
