The Office of Child Care supports our grantees in various ways. Among the most important is our Early Childhood Training and Technical Assistance (T/TA) system. The system brings together resources from the Office of Child Care, Office of Head Start, and our health partners to offer CCDF Administrators and their partners information, tools, training, and other supports.

Impact Project Launches With Nine States and Territories

As part of the new Early Childhood Training and Technical Assistance System, the Child Care State Capacity Building Center (SCBC) launched the Impact Project for States and Territories in March 2016.

We are excited to announce that nine States and Territories have been selected to participate in this opportunity

These States and Territories were selected through a competitive application process. They have diverse contexts, geographies, and entry points for advancing quality and are united by their commitment to building stronger EC systems to support significant change for young children from low-income families.
