The following reports include the initial CCDF Plan data submitted by states and territories as of July 1, 2021. The preliminary reports and information are subject to change. The Plans are currently under review and will become effective as of October 1, 2021. For more detailed information about the sections listed below, please refer to the CCDF State/Territory Plan Preprint (PDF).
The state-level aggregate report, or ACF-800, is one of two data collections undertaken by the Office of Child Care (OCC) pursuant to the requirements of the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act. The other data collection is accomplished through the ACF-801 Report, which requires detailed, case-level data on families served through the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). All CCDF lead agencies in the States, the District of Columbia, and Territories (including Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Marianna Islands, and the US Virgin Islands) are responsible for completing the ACF-800. For more information, please see the OCC website at: http://www.acf.hhs.gov/occ/resource/acf-800-annual-aggregate-child-care-data-report.
The purpose of this Program Instruction is to inform States and Territories that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has approved changes to the ACF-800 Report that will allow the Office of Child Care to collect and report critical data about the use of any COVID-19 supplemental CCDF funds appropriated by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act, and the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act. The form and instructions are attached.
NOTE: ARP Act Stabilization Grants funds or other initiatives funded with CCDF quality dollars (e.g., quality and supply building grants) that are NOT linked to the eligibility of specific families and children ARE NOT to be included in the ACF-800 report as these activities will be reported under other data collection efforts.
ARP Act Supplemental Funding State Fact Sheets offer state by state information about the allocation of American Rescue Plan funs that will support families, child care providers, and communities across the country.”
