NICCA Survey on CCDF Training and Technical Assistance
Greetings Tribal CCDF Staff,
 
The National Indian Child Care Association has been asked to provide input on the Tribal CCDF Training and Technical Assistance (T/TA) contract that provides trainings, conferences, site visits, pamphlets, etc. to Tribal CCDF programs across the country. Please take this quick survey to answer a few questions regarding your experience with the T/TA and what you would like to see happen in the future. This will better inform those that are developing the criteria for what will happen with Tribal CCDF T/TA for the next 5 years.
 
New in the proposed regulations is the designation of Tribal CCDF programs by their allocation. Tribes receiving less than $250,000 per year would be considered a small allocation, Tribes receiving between $250,000 and $1 million would be considered medium allocation, and Tribes receiving more than $1 million would be considered a large allocation. Requirements for administering the CCDF program is different based on the Tribal allocation.
 
In the past, the T/TA contractors provided an annual conference, cluster trainings, new administrators trainings, and on-site technical assistance. The past few years, the contract did not include an annual conference for Tribal CCDF programs. Please keep in mind what would benefit your program to help you improve the quality of care you offer to families and to assist you in meeting the new standards set out in the proposed regulations.
