Attention: All Parties Interested in California's Child Care and Development Services

On November 19, 2014, the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) was reauthorized External link opens in new window or tab.. The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) is a component of the block grant. Every three years, the federal government requires states, territories, and tribes that receive funds through the federal CCDF to prepare and submit a plan detailing how these funds will be allocated and expended. The California Department of Education (CDE) has been designated in state law to be the lead agency that is responsible for administering the CCDF in California and, therefore, is required to submit the CCDF State Plan.

The submission deadline for the final CCDF State Plan Fiscal Year (FY) 2019–21 is August 31, 2018 to the federal government. A proposed timeline of this process can be found at the CCDF State Plan Timeline Web page.

Public testimony regarding the CCDF State Plan FY 2019–21 will be accepted until May 21, 2018. For information on submitting public input, visit the Input Opportunities for CCDF FY 2019–21 State Plan Web page.
