The child care services you provide are important to both families and the community. The strong storms and increased rainfall this spring is causing flooding and damage in many Iowa counties. Child care providers need to let the Department of Human Services (DHS) know if your child care business has been impacted and if so, the extent of the damage. The information will help DHS to evaluate the community’s child care infrastructure and determine if resources are needed to restore child care services in the community.
If your child care business is in an area with damage and your business did not have any damage, complete the survey to let us know if you have child care spaces available for children that cannot receive care from their current child care provider based on damage.
Please click on this link to complete the survey, it will take approximately 3-5 minutes to complete.
If you have questions or need additional information, please contact your CCR&R consultant or click here for contact information for the CCR&R regional office.
