Mandatory Meeting for Providers receiving Subsidy families

There is a mandatory from Virginia for Child Care Providers that serve children and families receiving Child Care Subsidy.  The Child Care and Development Block Grant Act of 2014 reauthorized the funding for federal child care assistance through the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF). These funds are used to authorize child care subsidy services for families at each local agency across the state and make payments to approved child care providers for services rendered. The new law requires specific changes to the way the Department of Social Services administers the Child Care Subsidy program with the goal of promoting families’ economic self-sufficiency, providing affordable child care, and improving the quality of child care programs. The law has also updated the requirements for ALL PROVIDERS who received child care subsidy payments. There are new health and safety requirements as well as updated training requirements for our vendors. The implementation date for some of these new requirements is November 2016.

To register: Attendance at one of these meetings will be mandatory for all Subsidy Vendors. Each vendor must choose a location and time to attend and must PRE REGISTER. Available slots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. If you (or a representative from your facility) do not attend one of these meetings, you will no longer be approved or eligible to receive subsidy payment until participation in a meeting has been completed.
The ONLY method of registration is via the internet.

There are several sessions available to attend across the state during the months of July through October, 2016. Please choose your preferred option when you click REGISTER.
Each location has its own ticket – the home page lets you know what the location and times are for the meetings. When you click “register”, you will be able to choose a location. When the tickets (based on the capacity of the room is reached) are “sold out”, you will receive a message to that effect informing you to choose another location. The registration form will require that you provide you name, your email address, company name (your name or your center’s name), and your vendor ID number. The registration confirmation will include specific location information.
NOTE: When you receive your “ticket” confirmation, the first date you see in the “Date/Time” box will be the full range of dates for the Vendor Information Sessions. To confirm that you registered for the correct session, look at the bottom box “Type” to see the actual session you have selected.
