Child Care Assistance

The Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) program is designed to ensure that low-income families have equal access to child care and educational opportunities. Many Indiana families are unable to access high-quality child care because it is too expensive. CCDF provides them the opportunity to work, go to school or attend job training.
