As one of the largest stimulus packages in U.S. history, ARP provides ACF with resources to better serve the children, families, and communities at the center of our mission and build a strong foundation for the next generation. This table provides an overview of the funding deadlines, including grant release dates for ACF programs.
Within the first 100 days of the Biden-Harris Administration, ACF has taken action to stabilize the child care industry, support children and families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, provide desperately needed economic relief, restore a child welfare focus at the border, and advance racial equity and supporting underserved communities.
ACF will pursue a robust approach to advancing equity across our programs and processes, with a focus on people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality.
The Office of Child Care has developed this guidance in order to provide Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Lead Agencies with information to assist them in meeting government-wide reporting requirements mandated by the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (Transparency Act or FFATA).
