A Child Care Provider's Guide to the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP)

 

I have never been a child care provider through the program. Is there anything I need to do before I can start receiveing payments?

Yes! Child Care Home Providers that are NOT LICENSED through the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) must submit:

- copy (front and back) of a current picture identification (i.e. Illinois driver's license, Illinois state ID, or military ID)

- copy of your social security card

- completed W9 form

- completed CANTS (Child Abuse and Neglect Tracking System) form

Any providers that are LICENSED must submit:

- W9 form

- Child Care Rate Certification form

How often will I get paid?

Regular payments will come on a monthly basis.

Please explain monthly co-payments.

All parents are required to share in the cost of child care for their children. Parents MUST make a payment, called the Parent Co-Payment to their child care provider once per month. The amount of the parent co-payment is based on gross monthly income, family size and number of children receiving child care.

*** The monthly co-payment amount assigned to the parent is deducted from the provider's check. It is the child care provider's responsibility to collect the co-payment.

What is the daily rate that I will be paid?

I have submitted my Child Care Certificate for payment. How Can I check on the status of my payment?

You can call 1-800-804-3833. This toll free number is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

You can also get payment information by visiting the state comptroller’s website at: www.comptroller.state.il.us and select "vendor payments".

Are taxes taken out of a child care providers check?

NO. Taxes cannot be taken out of the checks you receive. If you are paid at least $600 within a year, you will receive a 1099 form stating the child care income you earned for the year.

Are you changing your address?

Please notify us. We have a change of address form for you to complete.

*If your address is not current, your payments may be delayed and you may not receive important notices.
