Tracking Child Care ARRA Funds: January Update
Jan 20, 2010
Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) ARRA funds are available until September 30, 2010. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services issues weekly reports tracking state outlays of ARRA funds. As of January 8, states, territories, and tribes have drawn down a total of $429.9 million in child care funds, or 22 percent of the $2 billion allocation.
Only four states have not yet reported drawing down any funds: Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia, which we count as a state. Ten states have drawn down over 50 percent of allocated dollars: Arkansas, Alabama, Arizona, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Kentucky, Maryland, Ohio, and Oregon. Please note that ARRA reporting of state outlays includes any tribal funds drawn down within the state.
