Child Care Program Office (CCPO)

Mission: We support Families in Accessing Quality Child Care

Vision: Safe, healthy child care is available and affordable for all families in Alaska.

The Child Care Program Office (CCPO) is the lead agency for the Federal Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) functions.

The CCPO monitors, regulates, and licenses child care facilities across the state and further promotes child care quality through grants to Child Care Resource & Referral agencies and the direct administration of the Child Care ​Grant Program.

The CCPO promotes capacity and accessibility in child care with special attention to infants, school age child care, and children with special needs.

Current Events

The Child Care Program Office (CCPO) in conjunction with the Division of Public Assistance Research and Analysis Unit conducted informational meetings in December 2018 regarding proposed program changes to the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP). Since then, the CCPO has received additional clarification and instruction from the federal Office of Child Care causing us to rework some of our proposed program changes and to add others. As a result, the CCPO has opted to conduct additional informational webinars to share updated proposed program changes to meet the requirements of the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) for the CCAP. The proposed program changes include but are not limited to updated changes pertaining to CCAP Rates. The following is a schedule of upcoming informational meeting webinars.

To obtain resources and materials on the regulation changes to 7 AAC 57 Child Care Facilities Licensing, please visit our Resources and Reports page.
