CCDBG Reauthorization Passed in the House

On September 15, the House passed, by voice vote, the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act (S. 1086). The Senate approved the legislation on March 13 (see The Source, 3/14/14).

The bill would reauthorize through FY2020 “such sums as may be necessary” for the Child Care and Development Block Grant program (CCDBG) under the Child Care and Development Block Grant Act (P.L. 101-508).

The legislation would assist states in: providing high-quality child care, improving children’s school readiness, providing consumer information about child care services, increasing the number of low-income children in high-quality child care settings, and improving the coordination and delivery of early childhood education and care.

The bill includes a sense of the Senate that the president should present to Congress a plan to reduce child poverty in the United States by 2019.
