Trends in Child Care Spending from the CCDF and TANF

"The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) is the main source of federal funding dedicated primarily to child care subsidies for low-income working families. The term “CCDF” was coined in regulation by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to encompass multiple child care funding streams, including
 federal discretionary child care funds authorized by the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) Act,
 federal mandatory child care funds authorized by Section 418 of the Social Security Act (sometimes referred to as the “Child Care Entitlement to States”),
 state maintenance-of-effort (MOE) and matching funds associated with the Child Care Entitlement to States, and
 federal funds transferred to the CCDF from states’ Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grants..."
