Title: Child Care and Development Fund Tribal Annual Report (ACF-700 Report).
OMB No.: 0980-0241.
Description: The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) report requests annual Tribal aggregate information on services provided through the CCDF, which is required by the CCDF Final Rule (45 CFR parts 98 and 99). Tribal Lead Agencies (TLAs) are required to submit annual aggregate data appropriate to Tribal programs on children and families receiving CCDF-funded child care services.
The CCDF statute and regulations also require TLAs to submit a supplemental narrative as part of the ACF-700 report. This narrative describes general child care activities and actions in the TLA's service area and is not restricted to CCDF-funded child care activities. Instead, this description is intended to address all child care available in the TLA's service area. The ACF-700 and supplemental narrative report will be included in the Secretary's report to Congress, as appropriate, and will be shared with all TLA's to inform them of CCDF-funded activities in other Tribal programs.
Respondents: Tribal Governments.
