Regulation Revision Suggestions Survey

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE)'s Bureau of Family Heath (BFH) is home to several regulatory programs. State regulatory programs are designed to protect and preserve the public’s health, safety, and well-being. Agencies are given authority through law to establish regulations that describe how laws are to be implemented. Maintaining an effective regulatory program greatly reduces the risk of harm to the people of Kansas and our resources. 

Receiving feedback on program regulations is critical to the regulatory review process and community participation. The survey allows members of regulated communities and the public to offer feedback on KDHE BFH regulations.  

Thank you for sharing your voice as we move forward together to protect the health, safety, and welfare of Kansas families. Share your feedback today.

COVID-19 Financial Support Extended Through 2023

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) supplemental funds allocated by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP) will be used to provide financial support to child care providers throughout the state of Kansas. The Kansas Department for Children and Families is partnering with KDHE to offer support to child care providers by waiving the application and background check fees beginning September 1, 2021, through September 30, 2023.

Comprehensive background check fees will be paid for all currently licensed providers and new affiliates (individuals living, working, or volunteering in a facility). All application fees will be paid. If you have questions, call 785-296-1270 or email us.
