Changes in CCDF rules - July 1, 2015

Important new child care laws are going into effect. All unlicensed child care programs receiving CCDF funding will be impacted by the new laws. This includes registered ministries and legally licensed exempt programs (LLEP), both home and center-based that choose to accept CCDF vouchers. Remember - you must meet these additional standards effective July 1, 2015 in order to continue to receive CCDF funding. These changes do not affect programs who are licensed.

Change can be overwhelming. We know this, so we are here to help.
