Is citizenship status required?
Children receiving care must be U.S. citizens or aliens lawfully admitted for permanent residence. Verification of citizenship status for the child must be provided in order to determine eligibility. (This may include birth certificates, or any other verification accepted by the Colorado Department of Revenue to verify citizenship status. (Section 3.140.1) If verification is not available at the time of application a family may be given a reasonable amount of time to secure that information before the child becomes ineligible for childcare. The reason for the delay in providing the documentation must be well-documented. The citizenship requirement does not apply to parents.
What kind of documentation do I need to enroll in the Child Care Assistance Program?
You will need documentation to prove eligibility in the above categories and a completed application form.
