Important information for providers serving families on 4Cs Child Care Payment Programs

ARPA SURVEY FOR CHILD CARE PROVIDERS

The ARPA survey from child care providers has recently been revised to meet federal requirements. All providers who have received or will receive any ARPA Stabilization funds must complete the revised survey, even if they already completed and submitted the previous version. In addition, all providers eligible for reimbursement rate supplements pursuant to Assembly Bill (AB) 179 and Stipends pursuant to Senate Bill (SB) 115 must submit an ARPA survey before payment can be made.

You may complete the online survey by clicking on American Rescue Plan Act Survey. Hard copies are also available via the links below:

As a reminder, all licensed child care providers are required to complete one survey per facility license.
