Contracts for service to California IHEs, nonprofit organizations, local educational agencies, and other organizations and agencies to provide childcare services for children ages birth to 13 years. Funding is intended to provide full year, full daycare and to increase the availability of childcare services to eligible children.
The intent of this Request for Applications is to expand General Child Care and Development (CCTR) for full-day, full-year funds for General Child Care and Development services statewide. Awards will be made by county allocation and within each county by Local Planning Council priority area.
Funding preference shall be provided to underserved areas as identified by the LPC. The LPC priorities are located on the ELCD Electronic Submission of LPC Priorities web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/cd/ci/lpcesubmission.asp.
The CDE will allocate funding by county, based on a statewide comparison of need and resources. Need is established by data and will be determined by families at or below 85 percent of the state median income by county.
Applicants may apply for CCTR funding to operate via a Family Child Care Home Education Network (FCCHEN). However, the applicant contractor is responsible for administrative, programmatic, and fiscal compliance with the CCTR FT&C and program requirements as well as compliance with the laws and regulations pertaining to FCCHENs. For more information, see page 7 of General Child Care and Development Program Expansion Funding Request for Applications Program Overview and Instructions in Supporting Documents below.
