Frequently Asked Question
You and your selected provider will receive a letter from the Department notifying you both of the maximum that the Department will pay and the effective date that payments will begin for each eligible child.
If you choose to bring your child to the provider prior to date payments begin, you will be responsible for all charges and payments.
Family independence Temporary Assistance Program (FITAP) applicants who need child care to participate in an approved Strategies to Empower People Program (STEP) activity, including work registration at the Louisiana Workforce Commission, are qualified for CCAP payments from the date participation in STEP begins.
For questions regarding STEP requirements and/or the Louisiana Workforce Commission, please contact your STEP case manager.
