The Center for Supporting Research on Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Implementation supports the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in learning from The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Implementation Research and Evaluation Grants program. Through this grant program, CCDF lead agencies will develop research plans to evaluate the implementation of key policies and initiatives.
In addition to supporting the grantees, the center will:
- Support ACF in building the capacity of the field, including CCDF lead agencies that are not grant recipients, to conduct high-quality, rigorous research;
- Inform the development of research-based information related to the implementation of policies responding to the goals of the CCDBG Act of 2014; and
- Facilitate learning from the research conducted by grantees.
