Child Care Reporting--Provider City

Provider City (CDD-801B only)

The Provider City information field indicates the city associated with the street address where subsidized child care services were provided through an agency’s contract with the Early Education Division (EED).

Where to Find It

This information should be in the family’s file.

Note: Check to see if the family has a subsequent Notice of Action on file (not the initial notice) that applies to the report period (i.e., completed on or before the report period as indicated by the Effective Date of Action). If such a Notice of Action is on file, enter the updated information that reflects the child care provider's city.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Our agency operates several sites. We have a child who received services at one of our sites during the first part of the month, but transferred to a different site during the last part of the month. How do we report this?

    Agencies report two providers for children receiving subsidized child care services operated by the same provider at two different locations. All the provider information is the same except each would reflect a different street address (and possibly a different zip code).
