Working with Providers and Programs

banner child care assistance and referral family members

Child Care Assistance and ReferralĀ partners with various community child care programs to provide child care to eligible families. These programs are contracted vendors and are reimbursed for child care services provided to families that participate in CCAR.

Become an Approved CCAR Vendor

Once a family chooses a placement for their child, a CCAR Child Care Specialist will work with the child care program to complete a Fairfax County Vendor Agreement. The vendor agreement outlines CCAR's program policies and terms under which CCAR will reimburse for care. Eligible child care programs must provide proof of their legal operation and submit a W-9 along with a valid Social Security Number or Tax Identification Number. Fairfax County will reimburse up to the Maximum Reimbursable Rate established by the Virginia Department of Social Services.
