Deadline May 26, 2018

Those wanting to submit comments pertaining to Pennsylvania’s Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) Grant Draft State Plan should do so by the May 26, 2018 deadline.

The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) program provides resources to state, territory, and tribal grantees that enable low-income parents to work or pursue education and training so that they can better support their families while at the same time promoting the learning and development of their children. The CCDF program also provides funding to enhance the quality of child care for all children. The Child Care Development Block Grant is one of the primary federal funding sources for monitoring regulated child care programs, child care subsidy through Child Care Works, and child care quality improvement through Keystone STARS.

Read the draft state plan and Executive Summary, then share your comments by May 26.

Comments should be mailed to and should use the template on the PA Department of Human Services website.
