Current Events

May 1, 2017 – Welcome to the new Child Care Program Office website! In an effort to make it easier for you to find the resources or forms you’re looking for, we’ve redesigned and streamlined our website. Please let us know if you have any trouble finding anything or navigating the new interface.

The Department of Health & Social Services proposes to change regulations on the child care assistance program related to the program rates, enrollment authorization, family contribution toward care, and continued participation. To view the proposed changes visit the Online Public Notice. The comments must be received not later than 5 p.m., on June 5, 2017. You should comment during the time allowed if your interests could be affected. You may submit written questions relevant to the proposed action to Samantha Ray by email at or at:
