NEWS: Program Instruction on CCDF Reauthorization Effective Dates

With last Novemberís historic passage of the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014, we have entered an exciting new era for early childhood care and education. The new law (Pub.L. 113-186) not only reauthorizes the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) program, but makes expansive changes that will greatly improve child care services for our nationís children and families.

The law includes a number of substantive changes to program requirements, some of which include statutorily mandated effective dates.  The attached Program Instruction includes a description and timeline summarizing effective dates associated with different provisions in the law.  This guidance applies to states and territories administering the CCDF program.
