Child Care Assistance Program
As a child care provider, your participation in the Illinois Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) opens the door to quality, affordable child care for working families.
The Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP), funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS), assists low-income working families with paying for child care services.
Any legally operating child care provider or program (this includes licensed and license-exempt family child care homes and center based programs) may choose to accept reimbursement payments from the CCAP for child care services provided. By accepting CCAP payments you allow more children and families to have access to your services.
