Overview of States CCDF Implementation Status by CCDF Requirement

The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Plan is the application States, Territories, and Tribes use to apply for their block grant funding by providing a description of, and assurances about, the Lead Agency’s CCDF program and services. States are required by law to submit Plans every 3 years. The CCDF Plan serves as a planning document for States and is developed in collaboration with numerous partners and stakeholders to ensure that the CCDF program, over the 3-year Plan period, addresses the needs of families, providers, and communities. The FY 2019-2021 CCDF Plans are the first in which States are expected to be in full compliance with the new requirements in the CCDBG Act of 2014 and the associated final rule (including discretionary and mandatory funds).
