Forecasted Notice of Funding Opportunity for Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Lead Agency Data and Research Capacity Grants
The Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is excited to announce that we plan to fund CCDF Lead Agency Data and Research Capacity Grants in 2024. We thank you for sharing this information with others as relevant.
The Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) plans to fund applications for Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Lead Agency Data and Research Capacity Grants (HHS-2024-ACF-OPRE-YE-0080). This grant opportunity will provide funding to support CCDF Lead Agencies and researcher partnerships to develop and improve state, territory, and Tribal data systems. Also, it will build the capacity of CCDF Lead Agencies to collect, analyze, and use data to guide child care policy decisions and program improvement efforts.
These 18-month projects will fund a planning phase to develop a research plan, addressing questions of interest to the CCDF Lead Agency. This includes a path for identifying, linking, and using state, territory, and Tribal data to inform child care policy decisions. The planning grants could be followed by a second competition. Phase II would be announced under a separate Notice of Funding Opportunity and would support the execution of the plans to develop and improve state, territory, and Tribal data systems.
