Update: News from IDHS on the Federal Shutdown and CCAP
IDHS’s child care budget is made up of a combination of federal Child Care and Development Block Grant funds, Temporary Aid to Needy Families funds, and State General Revenue Funds. Given this combination of funds, we will be able to continue as planned with our Sate Fiscal Year 2024 expenditures into October, and will continue to evaluate on a monthly basis.
