                Plan) for Tribes 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. L. 113-186), and 42
                U.S.C. 9858. The Plan, submitted on the ACF-118A, is required
                triennially, and remains in effect for 3 years. The Plan provides ACF
                and the public with a description of and assurance about the tribes'
                child care programs. These Plans are the applications for CCDF funds.
                 The Office of Child Care has given thoughtful consideration of any
                comments received on the Plan Preprint document and revised the
                document in line with comments. Additionally, based on responses from
                Tribes and the current context of managing the COVID-19 Pandemic, OCC
                will postpone modernizing the allocation size thresholds. Requirements
                for this Tribal CCDF Plan submission will continue to be based on FY
                2016 allocations. Consistent with the statute and regulations, ACF
                requests revision of the ACF-118A with minor modifications. This 30-day
                second Public Comment Period provides an opportunity for the public to
                submit comments to OMB.
