CCDF Program and Plan
The Department is required to submit a CCDF Plan every three years. The CCDF Plan functions as the application for the CCDF grant, so it describes all DCYF's activities funded by the grant and how they comply with federal CCDF law and rules, such as:
Working Connections Child Care program
Child care licensing
2018 Plan Renewal
Executive Steering Committee
The CCDF Plan ESC was composed of representatives of various sectors impacted by CCDF-funded early learning programs, the Early Learning Advisory Committee (ELAC) that advises DCYF on statewide policy, and the Indian Policy Early Learning (IPEL) committee that discusses implications of policy on the Tribes.
DCYF held a series of public meetings and a webinar to gather input from the public on the CCDF Plan and how we can improve policy and DCYF program operations it describes. DCYF further made the draft Plan available on this page, along with a link to a section of this site where the public could submit comments on the draft.
The following Concise Explanatory Statement (CES) and Table lists comments received at these meetings, on DCYF’s site, and through email, and DCYF’s response. Comments received in Spanish, an DCYF’s responses to them, are recorded both in Spanish and English. Some comments resulted in changes to the draft CCDF Plan, and others will require future consideration by DCYF program staff.
