Description: The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Tribal Annual Report (ACF-700) requests Tribal Lead Agencies (TLAs) to provide annual Tribal aggregate information on services provided through the CCDF, which is required by CCDF regulations (45 FR parts 98 and 99). The revised ACF-700 report consists of an introductory section that provides program characteristics and two parts: (1) Administrative Data, and (2) Tribal Narrative. The content and format of the entire form have been revised to address Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act of 2014 changes and to reduce the reporting burden to TLAs.
Information from the ACF-700 will be included in the CCDF Report to Congress, as appropriate, and will be shared with TLAs to inform them of CCDF-funded activities.
Respondents: Tribal Governments.
