SUBJECT: Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Annual Report (Form ACF-700 and Supplemental Narrative) for Tribal Lead Agencies

REFERENCES: The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 1990, as amended (42 USC 9858, et seq.); regulations at 45 CFR 98.70(c).
PURPOSE: This Program Instruction provides the Tribal Lead Agency with the instructions for completing the CCDF Annual Report.

BACKGROUND:Tribal aggregate information on services provided through CCDF must be submitted annually, as required by the CCDF regulations at 45 CFR 98.70(c).

The CCDF Annual Report consists of two parts:

  • Form ACF-700 Report; and
  • Supplemental Narrative Report.

The Administration for Children and Families’ (ACF) form ACF-700 Report collects data on all children and families receiving direct CCDF-funded child care services during the period October 1, 2009 through September 30, 2010 (i.e., Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2010). The data should include any services funded by supplemental CCDF dollars made available by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), as well as services provided by “regular” CCDF Tribal Mandatory or Discretionary funds. The data reflect services provided during FFY 2010 regardless of whether the services were paid for with FFY 2010 funds or prior years’ CCDF funds. For example, all services provided during FFY 2010 that are paid for with FFYs 2008, 2009 or 2010 CCDF funds (i.e., Tribal Mandatory, Discretionary, and ARRA Funds—including funds for resource and referral and school-age care) are to be reported.

In addition, if a program uses other non-CCDF funds to further support direct child care services for the children being reported on the ACF-700, Tribes should indicate the use of those funds and identify the funding source in the “Comments” field of the ACF-700 report.

The Supplemental Narrative Report requests descriptions of the results of specific CCDF-funded activities available on the Tribal Lead Agency’s reservation or Tribal service area during FFY 2010.
