Program Instruction CCDF-ACF-PI-2009-04

Publication Date: June 21, 2010

To

Tribal Lead Agencies administering child care programs under the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 1990, as amended, and other interested parties.

Purpose 

This Program Instruction (PI) informs Tribes and Tribal Organizations of the process for obtaining Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Tribal Mandatory and Discretionary Funds.

References

The Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990 (CCDBG), as amended; section 418 of the Social Security Act; 45 CFR Parts 98 and 99.

Background

Federal regulations at 45 CFR 98.81 require Tribal Lead Agencies to apply for CCDF funds. For years in which the Tribal Lead Agency submits a biennial CCDF Plan, the Plan itself serves as the application. However, in non-Plan years, the Tribal Lead Agency must apply for funds in accordance with the guidance in this Program Instruction.

The CCDF is comprised of two funding sources:

  • Discretionary Funds — funding that is provided to eligible Tribes and Tribal organizations under the CCDBG Act of 1990, as amended; and
  • Tribal Mandatory Funds — funding that is provided to eligible Tribes and Tribal organizations under Section 418 of the Social Security Act
