Title: Child Care and Development Fund Quarterly Financial Report (ACF-696).

OMB No.: 0970-0163.

Description: States and territories use this form to facilitate the reporting of expenditures for the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) on a quarterly basis. The form provides specific data regarding expenditures, obligations, and estimates. It provides states and territories with a mechanism to request grant awards and certify the availability of state matching funds. Failure to collect this data would seriously compromise the Administration for Children and Families' (ACF) ability to monitor expenditures. This form may also be used to prepare ACF budget submissions to Congress. This information collection currently uses ACF-696 for which Office of Management and Budget approval expires on December 31, 2003, updated for electronic submission.

Respondents: States and territories that are CCDF grantees.
