Description

The Office of Child Care (OCC) supports low-income working families by promoting access to affordable, quality early care and afterschool programs.

The Bureau provides support in establishing child care policies and programs that take advantage of the flexibility that CCDF offers and that respond to the needs of low-income working families. In addition, OCC provides a variety of technical assistance and professional development services targeted to meet the needs of CCDF administrators in the States, Territories, and Tribes.
