Tribal Child Care And Development Fund: Guide for New Administrators

Published: September 18, 2012

Tribal Child Care and Development Fund administrators work each day to ensure that the children and families in tribal communities have the child care services that best meet their needs. The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF)1, a federal block grant for States, Tribes, and Territories, is a key resource to help increase the availability, affordability, and quality of child care services. With Child Care and Development Funds, tribal CCDF administrators can support low-income families, families receiving temporary public assistance, and those transitioning from public assistance in obtaining child care services so they may work, attend training, or participate in educational activities.
