Dear Child Care Assistance Providers,
As many of you know, with federal law changes, we enacted a number of regulations that are required. We wanted to take an opportunity and review changes that we could make to our regulations without compromising the health and safety of children in care.
I am writing today to update you on some important information about regulations for your programs. Effective January 1, 2022, we have a number of changes being made in hopes to make things easier for you.
Formal documentation of these changes can be found here.
We are also actively working to improve the Guidelines (Comm 095) to be much smaller and more user-friendly. Updates aren’t quite done yet but you will be able to find them here!
I also wanted to be sure to let you know that if you are renewing your CCA Provider Agreement any time soon, effective again on 7/1/21, you need to have full CPR certification that included your skills assessment.
Thank you for all of your hard work and please reach out to your DHS compliance staff if you have any questions!
