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.
