Dear 4-C families, child care providers and supporters,

It is with sadness that I inform you that 4-C will no longer administer the Child Care Assistance Program effective 7/1/12.  The Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Division of Child Care has decided to centralize CCAP services in Lexington, KY and awarded the contract to an agency there.  Although all of this information is very new, we want to assure you that 4-C will work diligently towards a smooth transition of this program to the new service agent for the state.

We are not aware of all of the changes that will take place with the new “Centralized Service model” but will share information with you as it becomes available to us.  Again, a smooth transition is first and foremost in our minds.

We understand that the new service agent will have local meetings for child care providers to explain the new process.  We encourage you to attend to learn more about this “model” so that services are uninterrupted for you and the families we serve.

Your support is appreciated as we proceed to successfully transfer the program.  It has been an honor to have served as the service agent for the CCAP for the last fourteen years.  4-C will still be here as your local child care resource as we have been for the last forty three years!  We look forward to continued services for you and the communities that we serve.



Susan A. Vessels
Executive Director, 4-C
