ACF Child Care Development Fund: Program Integrity

The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) program provides subsidized childcare to low-income families, families receiving temporary public assistance, and families transitioning from public assistance so family members can work or attend training or education. Each State must develop, and submit to the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) for approval, a plan that identifies the purposes for which CCDF funds will be spent for a 3-year grant period and designates a lead agency responsible for administering childcare programs. States receive block grants and other Federal funds (approximately $5.77 billion annually) to operate their childcare programs. Prior OIG work identified vulnerabilities in States' internal controls for the CCDF program and a national CCDF payment error rate of 5.74 percent. We will determine whether State agencies complied with Federal and State requirements when making payments to licensed providers under these childcare programs for Federal fiscal years 2016 through 2018.
