A family or group day care
home must sign an agreement with Community Childcare Food Supplement, Inc.
or another sponsor to participate in CACFP. Day
care homes must be licensed or approved to provide
day care services. Reimbursement for meals served
in day care homes is based upon eligibility for tier
I rates (which targets higher levels of reimbursement
to low-income areas, providers, or children) or lower
tier II rates.
