Title: Child Care and Development Fund Plan for States/Territories for FY 2008-2009.
OMB No.: 0970-0114.
Description: The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Plan (the Plan) for States and Territories is required from each CCDF Lead Agency in accordance with Section 658E of the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 1990, as amended (Pub. L. 101-508, Pub. L. 104-193, and 42 U.S.C. 9858). The implementing regulations for the statutorily required Plan are set forth at 45 CFR 98.10 through 98.18. The Plan, submitted on the ACF-118, is required biennially, and remains in effect for two years. The Plan provides ACF and the public with a description of, and assurance about, the State's or the Territory's child care program. The ACF-118 is currently approved through June 30, 2008, making it available to States and Territories needing to submit Plan Amendments through the end of the FY 2007 Plan Period. However, in July 2007, States and Territories will be required to submit their FY 2008-2009 Plans. Consistent with the statute and regulations, ACF requests extension of the ACF-118 with minor corrections and modifications. The Tribal Plan (ACF-118A) is not affected by this notice.
