Child Home Day Care Program
This program provides cash reimbursements for meals served in child day care centers, family and group day care homes, and adult day care centers. Programs are reimbursed according to the number of meals they serve to children. Child and Adult Care Centers receive reimbursement based on family size and income. Day care homes and group family day care homes receive reimbursement based on income level of the area or of the family.
Child Day Care Homes, Child Day Care Centers and Adult Day Care Centers must be licensed in order to participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).
In order to participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program, day care homes must be located in a home. Group Family Day Care Homes must be in a residential building. It may be a provider's home or it may be a vacant home. Note that licensing for a group family day care home allows it to be in another building (not necessarily a residence); however, if it is not in a residence, that Group Family Day Care Home is not eligible to participate in the CACFP.
To apply for services or obtain licensing information for a day care home, child care center or adult care center call (337) 721-4030. All licensing processes are managed by the Louisiana Department of Social Services.
