Child Care Assistance Child Care & Development Fund (CCDF)

About CCDF

The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) is a federal program that helps low-income families obtain child care so they can work, attend training, or continue their education. The purpose of CCDF is to increase the availability, affordability, and quality of child care.

The CCDF Program is administered through the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) in the Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning. The CCDF State Plan outlines state and local level parameters and includes program outcomes, systems development, and eligibility requirements.

How to Apply for Child Care Assistance

Families must then choose a child care provider who meets CCDF provider eligibility standards. If you need help locating a CCDF eligible provider, contact your local Child Care Resource and Referral agency.
