What is CCDBG?
"The Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) is the primary source of federal funding for child care. Funds are allocated to the states based on a formula that takes into consideration the number of young children in a state as well as the number of children who are in families earning low incomes. The CCDBG requires fingerprint background checks to be done. This is why the fingerprint background check was introduced as legislation and passed regarding Licesed Family Child Care Providers and those that provide care for children and receive subsidized funds. As of 2015 legislation, what was passed does not put us into compliance with what is required with CCDBG and Virginia will loose funds if we don't get into compliance with it."
