This memorandum replaces the July 2000 memorandum of the same title and provides standards for compliance with program requirements for provider participation while childcare licensing is in process of renewal. Sponsoring organizations are no longer required to conduct a preapproval visit for a provider who is relocating and continuing under the same sponsorship, since the food service capabilities of the relocating provider’s new day care home are verified as part of the licensing process.
Family child care homes meet the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) requirement for licensing or approval when "complying with applicable procedures to renew licensing or approval in situations where the State agency has no information that licensing or approval will be denied" [7 CFR 226.6(d)(1)(ii)].
A family child care provider who already participates in the CACFP and (1) has a child care license that expires, or (2) relocates, is considered to meet the CACFP requirement of "complying with applicable procedures to renew licensing" for six months from date of license expiration or date of move from the original location, based on documentation from the child care licensor that the provider is complying with applicable license renewal procedures.
