What does it mean to be listed and approved?
It means you have completed all the requirements, passed a background check, and are approved to receive child care subsidy payments from the Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS).
You must be listed and approved before you provide child care.
How do I get listed and approved?
- Complete a
Child Care Provider Listing form. Instructions and detailed requirements are included in the form.
- Send your completed form to the ODHS Direct Pay Unit right away (see below).
- ODHS will receive and process your listing form. We will contact you if there are any issues.
- After your listing form is approved, we will notify you and send you a billing form.
You need a billing form so you can be paid.
- Once you have been approved and have a billing form, you are ready to start providing child care.
Note: ODHS does not pay for child care provided before you are approved.
