STAM 2017 will focus on what we’ve learned from the last two years of implementing the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Reauthorization and what lessons we can take from research data, technical assistance and each other. The meeting will include peer-to-peer discussions, State and Territory examples of innovative administration practices and presentations on various research topics relevant to child care and the support of low-income working parents.
