In November 2014, with broad bipartisan support, Congress reauthorized CCDBG [Child Care and Development Block Grant] (the major federal child care program) for the first time since 1996. The new law strengthens CCDBG's dual role as a major early childhood education program and a work support for low-income families. This implementation guide is designed to help policymak­ers and advocates gain a better understanding of what is entailed in fully implementing the law. It summarizes and analyzes key sections of the reauthorization, offering recommendations and areas of caution for states. It also includes a detailed chart compar­ing specific provisions of the new law with those of the previous law, an implementation timeline, a checklist indicating state compliance with select provisions of the law, a summary of the law, and state-by-state information on CCDBG funding and children served. The following are appended: (1) Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014: Summary; (2) Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014: Implementation Timeline; (3) Checklist of Select State Child Care Policies; (4) FY 2015 Estimated Federal and State CCDBG Allocations; (5) Average Monthly Number of Children Served in CCDBG; (6) Average Monthly Share of Children Served by CCDBG in All Types of Care, FY 2013; (7) Number of Providers Receiving CCDBG by Settings, FY 2013; and (8) Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014: Changes to Previous Law.
