Changes to Federal Law
The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014 was passed by the Congress and signed into law by President Obama in November 2014. This act is also referred to as the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). This is the federal funding source and guidance for the Child Care Financial Assistance Program (CCFAP) and all related child care quality and professional development initiatives administered by the Vermont Department for Children and Families, Child Development Division (CDD). This is a re-authorization of the federal law, and increases the federal expectations on states.
