Child Care and Development Fund

Increasing availability, affordability and quality

The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) is the primary source of federal funding for child care subsidies, parent information and child care quality supports. Programs funded by the CCDF are administered by states, territories and Tribes, with funding and support from the Administration for Children and Families’ Office of Child Care, through the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act. This funding helps states make improvements in their systems to better serve children, parents and child care providers.
