CCDF Fraud Toolkit and Instructions

The CCDF Fraud Toolkit is an evolving resource designed to assist CCDF Lead Agencies in increasing program integrity and accountability and decreasing fraud within their child care programs. Provided by the National Center on Subsidy Innovation and Accountability (NCSIA), the toolkit encompasses five separate evaluation sections or tools: an overall fraud risk assessment, and additional assessments for prevention, detection, enforcement and recovery, and monitoring.

Each tool has multiple categories, assessment questions, and helpful resources related to internal controls and fraud prevention strategies. CCDF Lead Agencies can assess their fraud risk levels by answering a series of questions. Each tool provides assessment results and some basic next steps.

Below is an online module for the overall Fraud Risk Assessment Tool. Additional modules are in progress for the remaining sections of the toolkit and will be posted to this page as they are available. In the meantime, the remaining sections are available in Microsoft Excel format. To request a copy of the assessment tools, please email NCSIA at
