DHS restructures child care program
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families announced a reorganization that establishes an Office of Child Care (OCC) that will administer the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). The CCDF provides child care subsidies for 1.6 million children in low-income families each month and works to improve the quality of child care in states, territories, and tribes across the country.
The OCC, which will replace the current Child Care Bureau, will elevate child care issues within ACF and facilitate direct collaboration with the Office of Head Start and other key agencies on a wide range of intersecting program and policy matters.
