Who Can Participate?

The program is available to public and private nonprofit organizations providing licensed, nonresidential day care services.  Such organizations include child care centers, adult care centers, outside-school-hours care centers, At-Risk centers, Emergency Shelters, and organizations providing day care services for children with disabilities and/or special health care needs.

Children twelve and younger are eligible to participate in the program (for children of migrant workers the age limit is 15 years).  People who are physically or mentally disabled participate regardless of age, if they receive care at a center where the majority of the enrolled participants are eighteen or under.

Adults are eligible to participate if they are enrolled in an adult day care center and are functionally impaired or 60 years of age or older.


Licensing

All centers must have child care or adult care licensing or approval.  The Oklahoma Department of Human Services, Child Care Licensing Unit and the Oklahoma Health Department (for adult care centers) can provide information on how to obtain a license.


Meal Service

All participating facilities must serve meals that meet the United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) minimum meal pattern requirements as well as standards for safety, sanitation, and food quality.


Program Assistance

Institutions may receive reimbursements for up to three meal services (two main meals and one snack or two snacks and one main meal) per day per participant.

Program payments are made to institutions based on the number of meals served to enrolled participants multiplied by the current reimbursement rates.  The reimbursement rate may change according to the annual National Average Payment Rate and varies with each participant's family size and income.

To review the current reimbursement rates, click "Rates/Eligibility Scales" on the navigation bar at the left side of this page, or click here.
