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

OMB No.: 0970-0163.

Description: States and Territories use this form to report expenditures for the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) on a quarterly basis. The form, which is also available electronically through a Web-based application, 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 could seriously compromise the ability of the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) to monitor expenditures. This form may also be used to prepare ACF budget submissions to Congress. Office of Management and Budget approval for the current form expires on March 31, 2007.

Respondents: States and Territories that are CCDF grantees.
