Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Fraud Toolkit


The National Center on Subsidy Innovation and Accountability (NCSIA) team at WRMA developed the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Fraud Toolkit on behalf of the Office of Child Care. This evolving resource is designed to assist CCDF Lead Agencies in increasing program integrity and accountability and decreasing fraud within their child care programs. The toolkit encompasses five separate evaluation sections or tools: an overall fraud risk assessment and additional assessments for prevention, detection, enforcement and recovery, and monitoring.

Each tool has multiple categories, assessment questions, and helpful resources related to internal controls and fraud prevention strategies. CCDF Lead Agencies can assess their fraud risk levels by answering a series of questions. Each tool provides assessment results and some basic next steps.
