INFORMATION PROVIDERS NEED TO KNOW

Erroneously Obtained Payments
If the state or local child care assistance office determines that there is reasonable evidence you erroneously obtained payments, steps
will be taken to reduce or withhold future payments, to establish a repayment schedule, or to take other corrective action including
probation, suspension or termination from participation in the program.
An erroneously obtained payment means child care assistance payments received by a provider that he or she was not entitled to or
that were received while in noncompliance with a program requirement.
Sanctions for Non-Compliance
Your participation as a child care provider in the Child Care Assistance Program may be placed on probation, suspended, or
terminated for any of the following, but not limited to:
Failing to maintain status as an approved, licensed, or certified provider under the CCAP and to provide child care services in
accordance with that status;
Failing to maintain records required by the CCAP and refusing to allow an inspection of those records during scheduled
Refusing to comply with a plan of correction or repayment plan, or cooperate with the development of the plan;
Failing to comply with any compliance action or corrective action plan or to cooperate with the establishment of the plan; and
Failing to cooperate with a representative of the Department of Health and Social Services for purposes of investigations to
determine compliance with CCAP requirements.
You may be prosecuted or otherwise sanctioned if you knowingly give false, incorrect or incomplete information to obtain or try to
obtain Child Care Assistance Program payments you are not eligible for, or to help someone else obtain payments for which they are
not eligible. If you are found to have committed an intentional program violation or convicted of defrauding the Child Care Assistance
Program, you may be disqualified from program participation and obligated to repay any amounts attributable to the intentional
program violation or fraudulent act(s), in addition to any applicable criminal penalties.
Under penalty of perjury or unsworn falsification, I certify that the information I have provided on this form is truthful and
accurate and that I have read, or had read to me, and understand my responsibilities as described in this document.
