CCDF Budget Calculator Instructions

The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Budget Calculator is intended to help Lead Agencies understand the impact of three common factors on the CCDF budget. Specifically, the calculator looks at the impact of adjustments to:

  • reimbursement rates,
  • eligibility levels, and
  • co-pays.

This tool is customizable to each Lead Agency and is intended to serve as an example and initial guide for calculating the budget impacts of changes to these factors. The National Center on Subsidy Innovation and Accountability (NCSIA) can provide support to help customize this tool to a Lead Agency’s specific needs.

A Microsoft Excel spreadsheet accompanies these instructions. The file is available by emailing NCSIA at [email protected].
