    Title: Child Care and Development Fund Plan for States/Territories 
for FFY 2019-2021(ACF-118).
    OMB No.: 0970-0114.
    Description: The Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Plan (the 
Plan) for States and Territories is required from each CCDF Lead agency 
in accordance with Section 658E of the Child Care and Development Block 
Grant Act of 1990, (CCDBG Act), as amended, CCDBG Act of 2014 (Pub. Law 
113-186), and 42 U.S.C 9858. The Plan provides ACF and the public with 
a description of, and assurance about, the States' and Territories' 
child care programs. States must submit Plans to ACF on or before July 
2, 2018 for approval in order to receive funding on October 1, 2018 for 
FY 2019.
    The Office of Child Care (OCC) has revised the FY 2019-2021 CCDF 
Plan Preprint to align with the CCDF Final Rule published on September 
30, 2016. In making the revisions, consideration was given to minimize 
the burden of the collection of information on respondents. The Plan, 
submitted via the ACF-118, is required triennially, and will remain in 
effect for three years.
    Due to unanticipated events, including challenges faced by States 
and Territories in implementing portions of the comprehensive and 
unprecedented background check requirements, the OCC has re-examined 
the implementation deadline to give States and Territories an 
opportunity to apply for additional time (up to two years, in one year 
increments) to meet the most challenging parts of the background check 
requirements as long as specific milestones are met. These developments 
required OCC to delay submission of the CCDF Plan Preprint for review 
and approval by OMB because the process and criteria for requesting 
additional time will be carried out as part of the Plan submission 
process. The delay prevented OCC from completing the regular Paperwork 
Reduction Act clearance process that includes two Federal Register 
notices and comment periods.
