Tribal Health and Safety Requirements Overview
This resource provides an overview of the health and safety requirements for Tribes who administer Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) programs. Tribes must demonstrate full implementation of these requirements effective October 1, 2019. The health and safety requirements include the requirement for Tribes with small, medium, and large allocations to define, develop, and implement health and safety standards in effect for any CCDF provider receiving CCDF funds. Additionally, Tribes will need to ensure training and professional development on the required health and safety standards is implemented. Finally, Tribes will need to have monitoring and enforcement processes in place to ensure that standards are being met and training requirements are being completed.
