||The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Policies Database provides a single source of detailed information on CCDF policies across time and across the fifty States, Territories, outlying areas, and the District of Columbia. The database includes policies regarding family eligibility, application and redetermination, priorities and waiting lists, family payments, provider requirements, and reimbursement rates. The database captures programs funded in whole or in part by CCDF funds, policies that can be coded with acceptable consistency across the States/Territories, and policies that have been implemented. It captures changes across time, key county-level variation, and different treatment for different subsets of families. Data are made available to the public in the form of the annual Book of Tables, capturing a subset of policies for a specific point in time. The full database detail is also made available to the public.
