Child Care and Development Fund plans FY 2016-2018: State waivers and corrective actions

The Office of Child Care (OCC) recently posted the FY 2016-2018 Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) State Plans. In the plans, states indicate how they will implement the CCDF program, including the new requirements of the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014. All state and territory plans have been conditionally approved, meaning that they can move forward, but still have work to do. OCC published letters outlining criteria that each state and territory must meet for final approval of its CCDF plan and responding to any requests for waivers or extensions. The plans will be fully approved if conditions are met based on waiver requests (if applicable) and based on implementation and corrective action plans for unmet requirements. Thirty-five states requested one or more waivers or extensions of unmet provisions of the new CCDBG law and/or required corrective action plans to implement one or more provisions of the law (see tables pages 6-12). Waivers were granted for one year, though some with the opportunity to renew if progress is made in the interim. Waivers were approved in all cases except those regarding health and safety training (Section 5.1.6b of the CCDF State Plans). Additionally, all states were told that their provider payment rates may not be sufficient and thus will be reviewed further by OCC. The following are provisions of the new CCDBG law for which states requested waivers or are required to take corrective action to address. (author abstract)
