Child Care Provider Contracts
The Adult and Family Services (AFS) Child Care Subsidy Unit approves, denies and monitors all contracts for licensed providers who wish to receive subsidy payments. Only licensed and contracted child care homes and centers are eligible to participate in the subsidy program so that children in families with low incomes receive quality care. Providing quality child care services assures that each child in care has the opportunity to develop, learn and grow in a positive environment.
