2022-2024 CCDF Plan (english only)
Summary of Changes (english) (español)

The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act is the law that authorizes the federal child care subsidy program known as the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). It is the primary federal funding source for providing low-income families that are working or participating in education and training with help paying for child care; and for improving the quality of care, learning, and development for all children. Connecticut's subsidy program is Care 4 Kids.

The CCDF plan reflects key goals of an integrated system of child care for low-income working families. The intention is that states and the federal government will be able to use this information to track and assess progress of child care service delivery; determine the need for technical assistance to child care programs; and monitor compliance with specific state and federal requirements.
