C-100: Child Care Local Match

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) allocates federal funding for child care services from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) to local workforce development areas (workforce areas).  For a portion of the CCDF funding, Workforce Development Boards (Boards) are required to secure and submit local matching funds to TWC in accordance with federal regulations and TWC’s Child Care Services rules at 40 Texas Administrative Code (TAC), Chapter 809, and General Administration rules at 40 TAC, Chapter 800.

TWC encourages Boards to secure local public and private funds for the purpose of matching federal funds in order to maximize resources for child care needs in the workforce areas.
