Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) report on states priorities for child care services: Fiscal Year 2019

Share
Description:
This priorities report includes analysis of ACF-801 administrative data and summary information from 2019-2021 CCDF state plans. The CCDBG Act of 2014, and associated 2016, CCDF regulation require additional data elements to be reported by states, which will enable us to better understand how states are providing priority services to these populations including data on children experiencing homelessness and children with disabilities (who are often included in the priority for children with special needs). Data available from these new elements is still limited, as states are working to improve the quality and completeness of this reporting. In order for states to report the new data elements, states must identify resources to make changes to their existing systems, and to establish the processes and procedures to collect and report these data. These changes included: 1) modify their application forms and policy materials to implement consistent definitions; 2) update application forms to include new questions; 3) update training materials and develop procedures to train state and local staff on the new requirements; 4) modify their data collection systems to collect and report these new data elements; and 5) potentially implement data sharing agreements to obtain data from other state systems.
