Clarification for CA Sponsors of Family Child Care Homes re: Permanent Agreement with Provider
There was some confusion among CACFP Sponsors of Family Child Care Homes about the updated "Form DCH 16 Permanent Agreement Between a Sponsor and a Day Care Home Provider." The confusion was around whether or not Sponsors had to update their current agreements with all of their current providers because there was an updated form. This is NOT the case. The agreements are for new providers and moving forward using this form for newly entered agreements.
"Any existing agreement [between a sponsoring organization and their providers] is still binding and will not be invalidated due to the publication of the updated form" (CDSS, 2022).
