COVID-19 Resource List for Child Care and Development Fund Tribal Lead Agencies
The Office of Child Care (OCC) recognizes that state, territory, and Tribal Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Lead Agencies are concerned about the impact the coronavirus may have on their programs and other programs they work with. Child care providers should take steps to prevent the introduction and spread of coronavirus among their staff, children, and families. Through collaboration and coordination with local health departments, programs can take steps to disseminate information about the disease and its potential transmission. In addition, CCDF Tribal Lead Agencies can adopt subsidy policies that promote continuity of child care services to impacted children and families and that maintain support for child care businesses during closures or other disruptions.
