Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF)

CCDF is the primary federal funding source devoted to providing low-income families that are working or participating in education and training with help paying for child care and improving the quality of child care for all children. Every 3 years, CT must complete a new plan that is approved by the Federal Office of Child Care (OCC). OCC then reviews the plan and, if approved, issues funds for the next federal fiscal year.
