Child Care and Development Fund: Report of State and Territory Plans, FY 2010-2011
Child Care Bureau
This report was prepared by the National Child Care Information and Technical Assistance Center (NCCIC) in partnership with staff from the Child Care Bureau. NCCIC compiled data reported in approved CCDF Plans and relevant attachments submitted by Lead Agencies for a selected number of questions. The information presented reflects some of the activities and strategies States and Territories planned to undertake as presented in the approved CCDF Plans. This report is not a catalog of all activities undertaken by Lead Agencies since States and Territories might not have included all activities in their CCDF Plans, which also may be amended at any time during the biennial period. In addition, this report includes some text taken directly from CCDF Plans, so certain terminology may differ in particular parts of the report given variations across States and Territories. Information is provided from 51 States and 5 Territories. For the purpose of this report, the District of Columbia is categorized as a State. The five Territories are American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Nearly all data in the tables and figures present combined information from States and Territories, rather than separate counts for each. The report includes two main sections ("Chapter 2: CCDF Plans Data Summary" and "Chapter 3: CCDF State and Territory Profiles"). The second chapter is a summary of selected data from all 56 Lead Agencies about how they comply with CCDF statute and Federal regulations, which corresponds to the CCDF Plan Preprint (Form ACF-118). Information is presented in table and figure format. The third chapter highlights selected services and activities through profiles of all States and Territories. These profiles present key information from the approved CCDF Plans about how the program is administered and implemented; eligibility criteria, reimbursement rates, and sliding fee scales; health and safety requirements; and selected activities to improve the quality of child care. These profiles provide examples for illustrative purposes as a supplement to the information presented in the second chapter. (Contains 42 tables, 2 figures and 1 footnote.)
