CCDF Program Integrity

The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) provides eligible, low-income families with help paying for child care at a provider of their choice. CCDF is the third largest block grant program administered by the Federal government with Federal grant funds totaling $5.4 billion in FY 2015. Through a partnership between the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and States, approximately 1.5 million children receive a child care subsidy from the CCDF program every month. In a July 2016 report entitled, More Effort is Needed to Protect the Integrity of the Child Care and Development Fund (OEI-03-16-00150), OIG describes States' FY 2015 program integrity efforts, including the scope and results of States' program integrity activities and the extent to which States have performed important antifraud activities. To complement this report, the interactive map below displays CCDF program characteristics for each State, including program statistics and selected program integrity activities.

2 The Payment Error Rate provided is from the State's most recent Error Rate Report. Due to the 3-year rotational submission of Error Rate Reports, the most recent reports available for States were for FY 2012, FY 2013, or FY 2014.

3 Unknown means that the State's response was "Do Not Know" to the OIG survey question.

4 Not Reported (NR) means that the State did not respond to the OIG survey question.

5 The State provided an overall total number of program violations and errors, but did not know the specific number for one or more of the types of violations and errors, i.e., intentional, unintentional, and administrative.
