Apply for Care 4 Kids
How do I apply for Care 4 Kids?
Start by filling out a Care 4 Kids Application. Click the button below to get the printable application.
You can also call 1-888-214-5437 and ask that one
be sent to you.
You will be asked to send back certain documents,
like paycheck stubs, with your completed Application.
If you have already chosen a child care provider, you and the
provider need to fill out and return a Parent-Provider Agreement
Form called a PPA. You need to fill out a separate PPA for each provider you use.
Parent Provider Agreement Form (PPA) (English)
Formulario del Acuerdo Entre Padre y Proveedor (PPA) (Español)
Care 4 Kids reviews your Application and PPA. If your case is granted, you are sent an approval letter with a Child Care Certificate that authorizes payment.
If your Application is not approved, you are sent a letter explaining why our Application cannot be approved at this time.
If you have completed filling out an Application, but have not chosen a provider, you can send in the Application anyway. When you and the provider complete the PPA, send it in. Child Care Certificates cannot be issued until the PPA is received.
