Quick Access

Anishinabek Community and Family Services (ACFS) operates the Child Care and Development (CCDF) Program with funding provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Child Care. The CCDF Program supports lower-income families through child care financial assistance and promotes children’s learning by improving the quality of and access to early care, education and after-school programs. 

The CCDF Program can subsidize a portion of child care costs for eligible parents or guardians so that a parent can work or attend an approved educational program.

The CCDF Program is also responsible for developing and regulating quality child day care homes on trust lands. Some financial assistance may be available to start up a licensed child day care home on trust land.

Please call (906) 632-5250 with any questions about the CCDF Program. Applications can be obtained at any ACFS Office (Sault, Kincheloe, St. Ignace, Munising and Manistique) or online by visiting www.saulttribe.com/membership-services/acfs.
