Public Hearing for the 2019–2021 Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) State Plan

As part of the 2019–2021 CCDF State Plan preparation process, federal law requires the lead agency to post the CCDF State Plan for a minimum of 30 days and to convene a public hearing. The purpose of the public hearing is to provide an opportunity for the public to comment on the provision of child care services and quality improvement activities under the State Plan before it is submitted to the federal government.

In accordance with these requirements, the CCDF State Plan is now posted and can be found at the following URL link:

The public hearing on the draft of the State Plan will take place as follows:

In addition to testimony at the public hearings, written testimony will be accepted and can be submitted by mail, fax, or e-mail.
