Denver CCAP Collaborative

Formerly called the Denver Child Care Task Force, the Denver CCAP Collaborative was founded to give Denver child care providers a stake in the conversation about policies and processes along with opportunity to meet and connect with Denver Human Services Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) staff.

Input, Dialogue, Solutions

Since the early 1990’s, this group has convened to discuss policy and funding issues that affect large and small child care providers in the Denver metro area. The Collaborative currently meets on the fourth Thursday of every month from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Denver’s Early Childhood Council unless otherwise noted on the events calendar. Participants include child care program representatives, individual child care providers, community funders, Denver’s Early Childhood Council staff and representatives from the Denver Human Services CCAP team. Topics at Collaborative meetings can include, but are not limited to:

  • Denver CCAP Program and Policy Changes
  • Community Funding Updates
  • Discussion of Welfare Reform Board Agenda
  • TANF updates

All community members and child care providers/program representatives are welcome!

More about CCAP

The Denver Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP) helps eligible families who are working, going to school or looking for employment afford child care. Learn more about eligibility requirements, get applications and find forms on the Denver Human Services CCAP website.

Child care providers must have a fiscal agreement in place with their county (or counties where the children in their care reside) to accept CCAP. In addition to licensed child care centers, Denver County CCAP also supports licensed home care providers and family, friends and neighbors who take care of children. Certain restrictions may apply. For information about getting set up through Denver County, email the Business Office of Child Care (BOCC)/Billing department at Denver Human Services
