FY25-27 CCDF Consultation & Hearings 

Michigan’s Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) State Plan. We want to hear from YOU!

The Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) helps promote families’ economic self-sufficiency by making child care more affordable. It also fosters healthy child development and school success by improving the quality of early learning and after-school programs. Over the years, significant advancements have been made possible through CCDF funds, including defining health and safety requirements for childcare providers, outlining family-friendly eligibility policies, and ensuring parents and the general public have transparent information about child care choices.
