On November 19, 2014, the President signed the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014 into law. This Law reauthorizes the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) and makes significant advances by defining health and safety requirements for child care providers, outlining family-friendly eligibility policies, and ensuring parents and the general public have transparent information about the child care choices available to them.  The CCDBG Act also changed the Plan cycle for CCDF from a biennial to a triennial Plan period; thus, the FY 2016-2018 Plan will cover a 3-year period.   The Plan submission deadline was extended from July 1, 2015 to March 1, 2016, with an effective date of June 1, 2016 through September 30, 2018.

The Office of Child Care (OCC) is pleased to release PDF copies of all approved FY 2016-2018 CCDF Plans that became effective June 1,  2016. The Plan serves as the application for CCDF funds by providing a description of, and assurance about, the grantee’s child care program and all services available to eligible families. This CCDF Plan is not the same as previous versions. OCC asked States and Territories to write their Plans based on a reasonable interpretation of the Act, pending completion of a final regulation. States and Territories had the option to outline an implementation plan for one or all of 26 new areas if the State/Territory was not yet able to certify compliance. Thus, these Plans are conditionally approved until each State/Territory fully implements all new requirements of the CCDBG Act of 2014. The OCC will partner with States and Territories to support and monitor the successful and timely implementation of all provisions of the Act.

The posted CCDF Plans reflect the services and activities as reported by all 56 Lead Agencies in their CCDF Plans for Fiscal Years 2016-2018. The CCDF Plans offer a snapshot into current and planned efforts, initiatives and implementation plans for each State/Territory over the next two years through September 30, 2018, but these Plans are not a catalog of all activities undertaken by the State/Territory. ACF is not responsible for the contents of these CCDF Plans. Reference to any specific commercial products, process, service, manufacturer, or company does not constitute its endorsement or recommendation by the U.S. Government, the Department of Health and Human Services, or the Administration for Children and Families (ACF).
