Reports on the Planned Uses of CCDF Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act Funds

The Office of Child Care (OCC) is pleased to announce that the Planned Use of Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act 2021 Funds Reports submitted by states have been posted on this OCC webpage. Tribal and territory reports will be posted in the coming weeks as well, and all reports are expected to be available on that OCC webpage by mid-April.

The CRRSA Act provided $10 billion in supplemental CCDF program funding to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. The CRRSA Act required all states, territories, and Tribes to submit a report describing how funds appropriated in the CRRSA Act will be spent. OCC is sharing the submitted reports to promote transparency to the American public on the planned uses of the significant investment made in the CRRSA Act.

As required in the Planned Use of CCDF CRRSA Act 2021 Funds Report Program Instruction (CCDF-ACF-PI-2021-01), the reports outline how states, territories, and Tribes planned to use their CCDF CRRSA Act awarded funds at the time of report submission. States, territories, and Tribes have until September 30, 2022, to obligate, or legally commit, the funds and may choose to revise or change how they spend their allocated funds. States, territories, and Tribes are not required to update their reports if their plans change. The CRRSA Act did not call for OCC to approve these reports, so OCC has not determined that all planned uses of the funds comply with CCDF and CRRSA Act requirements; this determination will be made through other OCC reporting mechanisms.
