New Resources From the National Center on Tribal Early Childhood Development

The National Center on Tribal Early Childhood Development (NCTECD) is pleased to share updated versions of two key guides for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) grantees. The new guides have been revised to align with the provisions of the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014 and 2016 CCDF Final Rule. They include new information about CCDF Final Rule requirements and guidance for CCDF program administration and implementation.

The updated guides are now available on the NCTECD website:

American Indian and Alaska Native Child Care and Development Fund: Guide to Financial Management, Grants Administration, and Program Accountability (previously referred to as the “Green Book”): This guide provides general information on fiscal administration and accountability for AI/AN CCDF programs, including basic financial management and grant management principles. It is a valuable resource for those overseeing the fiscal management of AI/AN CCDF programs.

American Indian and Alaska Native Child Care and Development Fund: A Guide for New Administrators: This guide provides a basic orientation to the AI/AN CCDF program. It includes an overview of CCDF law and regulations as well as information and guidance on key aspects of CCDF program administration and implementation. The guide was designed for new AI/AN CCDF administrators and staff members as well as experienced administrators and staff who would like to learn more about the implications of the CCDF Final Rule.
