Topical Resource Pages for American Indian and Alaska Native Child Care and Development Fund Grantees

In November 2014, the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014 was signed into law. The CCDBG Act, also known as “CCDF reauthorization,” reauthorized the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) program and introduced legal changes to strengthen the health, safety, and quality of child care and provide more stable child care assistance to families.

In September of 2016, the Office of Child Care published the CCDF final rule, which contains updated federal regulations for implementing the CCDBG Act of 2014 and administering the CCDF program in a way that meets the needs of children, child care providers, and families.

The topical pages below provide resources from the National Center on Tribal Early Childhood Development for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) CCDF grantees. Each page focuses on a major component of the CCDF final rule.
