Current Guidance

Background: Lead Agencies administering the CCDF program must meet several regulatory requirements established to support program integrity and financial accountability. These requirements are aimed at reducing errors in payment and minimizing waste, fraud and abuse to ensure that funds are being used for allowable program purposes and for eligible beneficiaries. The purpose of this guidance is to remind Lead Agencies of their roles and responsibilities in preserving program integrity and provide recommendations to assist Lead Agencies in strengthening accountability while continuing to preserve access for eligible children and families.
