Revised Draft of the Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) State Plan
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services prescribes the format for the Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) State Plan consisting of specific questions for states to answer. The Department of Economic Security is currently developing a budget proposal to obtain the necessary legislative authority to utilize the additional CCDF monies ($56M) allocated to Arizona. This will be more appropriately handled as part of the Arizona budget process with input by the Governor, the Legislature and the public.
