Fundamentals of CCDF Administration
What is the CCDF?
The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) is a federal and state partnership program supported by the Administration for Children and Families’ Office of Child Care. The Child Care and Development Block Grant Act (CCDBG) authorizes the CCDF, and the program has over $5 billion in federal funding. States, territories, and tribes with funding administer the program, and they provide financial assistance to low-income families. The program lets families access child care to attend work, training, or educational programs.
