You will need to have the 'Provider ID Number' given by the Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) before you can submit your application. You may request this from your childcare provider, or search online through the WA State Department of Children, Youth, and Families.
Step 3: After You Apply
If the application is incomplete, more information is needed, or if you do not qualify for the program, you will be contacted by the CAP Coordinator. Depending on program space availability, you may be placed on a waitlist and contacted at a later date if a space becomes available.
Within the main application you must submit cost verification documentation in order to receive funds. Adequate payment documentation may include one of the following:
Copy of childcare provider accounting record, ledger card, paid invoice or statement
Legible copy of bank statement showing electronic payment (transfer) of funds from bank account to the childcare provider
Typed letter signed by the childcare provider (must be on the childcare provider's letterhead) detailing names, dates of attendance, total monthly costs, and types/total of payments made
Revision Request Form
You must complete a Revision Request Form done online that goes to the Office of Financial Aid. This form is used to factor in the costs of childcare to potentially revise your financial aid award.
Additional Important Information
Failure to submit the cost verification and supporting documentation: If no communication has been made to the CAP Coordinator regarding missing cost verification with supporting documentation, you may:
Have your entire award cancelled and be required to repay the awarded funds (if funds are not repaid, a collections process may be initiated. All associated collection fees will be the responsibility of the student).
Have transcript and registration holds placed on your student account until repayment has been received
Become ineligible to participate in the program
Unused Funds, or Funds Paid to Unauthorized Provider: Unused funds will require repayment. No additional funding will be authorized until full amount has been repaid.
