Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Department of Human Services (TDHS) Child Care Services Program will conduct two public hearings (via WebEx) to collect public comments on the proposed Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) plan.
The plan will cover funding for the program for federal fiscal years 2022-2024 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families.
These hearings will give stakeholders an opportunity to provide input.
