The CCDF policies database book of tables: Key cross-state variations in CCDF policies as of October 1, 2016

Description: This Book of Tables presents key aspects of the differences in CCDF-funded programs across all 50 States, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands as of October 1, 2016. Additionally, highlights of policy changes between 2015 and 2016 are included throughout this report. October 1 was chosen as the focus date because it is the start of the federal fiscal year, consistent with the focus date of the triennial CCDF Plans (previously biennial), and consistent with the starting date of the annual period covered by ACF's administrative data (ACF-800 -- Annual Aggregate Child Care Data Report and ACF-801 -- Monthly Child Care Data Report). This Book of Tables includes 41 tables across four general areas of policy (see the Table of Tables at the beginning of this report for more information): - Eligibility requirements for families and children (tables 1 through 16) - Family application, terms of authorization, and redetermination (tables 17 through 24) - Family payments (tables 25 through 32) - Policies for providers, including maximum reimbursement rates (tables 33 through 41) The information in the tables is taken from the CCDF Policies Database, a cross-state, cross-time database of CCDF policy information funded by HHS/ACF/OPRE. The information in the Database, and thus the information in the tables, is based primarily on the documents caseworkers use as they work with families and providers (often termed "caseworker manuals"). The caseworker manuals generally provide more detailed information on eligibility, family payments, and provider-related policies than is included in the CCDF Plan documents submitted by States/Territories to ACF. The caseworker manuals also provide ongoing detail for periods in between CCDF Plan submission dates. The Database includes some of the policy variations that exist within States/Territories, and it includes policy details beyond those that appear in this Book of Tables. Readers interested in that level of information may obtain the full Database detail. (author abstract)
