Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF)
The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) is a federal program that helps low-income families obtain child care so that they may 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.
To apply for the CCDF voucher program, you must contact your local intake agent.
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.
