Child Care Assistance Requirements for Providers

Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) Information for Child Care Providers

Child care providers who accept financial assistance payments from CCAP are key to the success for families who are working and/or enrolled in an approved education and training program. Providers will need to complete the provider portion of the application or change of provider paperwork with the family. Whether the provider is a licensed or licensed exempt home or center they will be responsible for submitting paperwork in order to receive payment from the Office of the Comptroller.

License Exempt Home Providers

  • Copy of your social security card
  • W-9 Form
  • Background check and/or fingerprinting form

Licensed Home and Center Providers

License Exempt Center Providers can contact the CCAP department to inquire about requirements.

To help ensure the health and safety of children, the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) is requiring all child care providers participating in the Child Care Assistance Program to complete specific health, safety and child development training, have current CPR/First Aid certification, and complete ongoing annual training hours.
