More about CCDF
The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014 reauthorizes the child care program for the first time since 1996 and represents a historic re-envisioning of the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) program.
Learn more about the law.
As the lead state agency for the CCDF block grant, the Washington State Department of Early Learning (DEL) must submit a plan every three years for how the funding will be used to improve accessibility and quality of child care in our state.
