States' Monitoring of Subrecipients to Ensure Program Integrity Within the Child Care Development Fund Block Grant Program

The Administration for Children and Families administers the Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) program, which provides block grants to States to subsidize the child care expenses of low-income families. Total funding for the CCDF program for Federal fiscal year 2017 was approximately $5.8 billion. CCDF provides eligible low-income families with child care subsidies for nearly 1.4 million children every month. CCDF has been identified as a Federal program that is susceptible to significant improper payments. Furthermore, past work by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) has found that States vary substantially in their program integrity activities and that not all States perform antifraud activities. To expand upon OIG's body of work focused on management of CCDF, this study will examine how States monitor subrecipients of CCDF funds to ensure they perform program integrity activities. We will also determine the outcomes of States' efforts to monitor CCDF subrecipients.
