On Friday, June 8 the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) published the final State/Territory Child Care and Development Fund Plan Preprint for FY 2019-2021. As result of the delay in releasing this, ACF has extended the plan submission deadline to August 31, 2018. In the final guidance, ACF encourages states to use the recent funding increase towards activities that will help one’s state comply with the Child Care and Development Block Grant Reauthorization Act of 2014.
In the coming weeks, ACF will issue more information on the submission process.
Child Care Aware® of America will continue to provide resources, including direct staff consultations, to assist you in working with your state administrators on finalizing the FY 2019-2021 Preprint.
