What is CCDF?
The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) helps low-income families obtain child care so they can work, attend training, or continue their education. The purpose of CCDF is to provide low-income families with the financial resources to locate and afford quality child care, as well as increase the availability of these programs.
Child care assistance is available for children through the age of 12 and up to age 18 for children with special needs. The child receiving assistance must be a U.S. citizen or qualified legal alien, even if the parents are not.
