The Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014, signed into law on November 19, 2014, reauthorizes the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Program. The CCDF Program provides funds to states to help low-income families pay for child care while a parent works or is in an educational or job training program. The reauthorized law makes significant advancements by defining health and safety requirements for child care providers, outlining family-friendly eligibility policies, and ensuring parents and the general public have transparent information about available child care choices.
