Federal Register Notice: 3-Year Extension of Consumer Education Website Reporting Requirement and Reports of Serious Injuries and Deaths


The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) has published a 60-day Federal Register notice soliciting public comments for a 3-year extension of two information collections required in Sections 45 CFR 98.43 and 45 CFR 98.42(b)(4) of the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Final Rule. The notice can be found on this Federal Register webpage.

As indicated in the Federal Register notice, ACF is not proposing any revision to these information collections. Section 45 CFR 98.43 requires CCDF lead agencies to include on their consumer education websites information about state or territory policies (related to licensing, monitoring, and background checks); provider-specific information, including the results of monitoring and inspection reports; and if available, information about quality. A set of instructions for this reporting requirement can be accessed via this Web link.

Section 45 CFR 98.42(b)(4) requires CCDF lead agencies to establish procedures that require child care providers who care for children receiving CCDF program subsidies to report to a designated state, territory, or Tribal entity any serious injuries or deaths of children occurring in child care. 

The Office of Child Care is seeking feedback from the public by February 19, 2023. Comments should be sent to the Office of Management and Budget, Paperwork Reduction Project, at [email protected], as indicated in the Federal Register notice.
