  • Family Friendly Policies to Improve Program Integrity
    The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) program provides funding to states, tribes, and territories to support child care assistance for low-income families. Eligibility policies that are family friendly, child focused, and fair to providers support CCDF goals. They can promote program access, economic stability for low-income families, and improved early learning and care outcomes for children. Streamlined eligibility practices also create administrative efficiencies, decrease the risk of improper payments, and create opportunities for using program resources to support program goals.
