Important Update

Important Update: Members are required to submit a complete Annual Recertification package within 30 days from the date of email notification from the USDA. Members who are non-compliant (failed to meet the 30 day deadline to complete the Annual Recertification package submission as directed by the USCG) will be officially removed from the USCG CCS Program and will be ineligible to apply for benefits for 30 days from their official removal date.

Annual Recertification Process

Each Member/Family enrolled in the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Child Care Subsidy (CCS) Program must Recertify for benefits each year in order to validate their continued eligibility. The Recertification process requires specific information and documentation from you and your Child Care Provider. Incomplete Recertification packages cannot be processed and may result in a delay in processing your paperwork and payments to your Child Care Provider and/or removal from the program

Members have 30 days to complete and submit all documentation to the USDA once they receive their Recertification notification. Failure to submit all required documents by the established deadline will result in the Member being officially removed from the USCG CCS Program due to non-compliance. In addition, a penalty will be applied that Members/Families who are non-compliant will not only be removed from the U.S. Coast Guard Child Care Subsidy Program, but will also be ineligible to re-apply for a USCG CCS Subsidy for 1 month. This new policy will become effective with the June 2018 Recertifications.
