Office of Child Care Tribal Request for Information Virtual Listening Session for Families and Providers
The Office of Child Care (OCC) invites public comment on the rules and regulations of the Tribally administered Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) program as part of the Administration for Children and Families' commitment to creating partnerships with Tribal Nations to identify and implement solutions that transcend traditional program boundaries. This Request for Information (RFI) specifically seeks public comment on the following topics of the Tribal childcare program: CCDF Funding Policies for Tribes, CCDF Administration, Improving Families' Access to Child Care, and Increasing Child Care Supply in Tribal Communities—but input on any aspect of the Tribally administered CCDF program is welcome. The OCC is hosting a virtual listening session on October 25, 2023 at 9:00 p.m. ET to gather feedback from families and providers on the RFI topics. A copy of the RFI and related resources are available on their website.
