Step 1: Watch our Info Session (above) and consider registering for an optional Child Care Subsidy Orientation Training. These trainings are offered virtually several times each month.
Step 2: Review the steps for completing your Subsidy Program Vendor Application here, including:
The Application Guides for your specific provider type for a complete list of documentation to include with your application, additional program requirements, as well as model forms for Required Documents.
Step 4: Some applicants are required to undergo a subsidy monitoring inspection prior to approval and once annually, thereafter. A representative of the Office of Health and Safety will contact the applicant within 30 days of referral by the Child Care Subsidy Program staff (note: child care programs approved under local ordinance have additional inspection requirements.)
Step 5: Applicants will receive a letter or email with their approval or denial within 45 days of their subsidy monitoring inspection results being received.
