The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) is designated under Minnesota Statutes, chapter 119B as the lead state agency for supervision of county administration of the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP). Minnesota Statutes require counties to submit a biennial County Child Care Plan to the commissioner. The Department of Human Services reviews County Child Care Plans. Counties will receive approval letters for their plans from the commissioner of DHS.
Child Care Assistance Program rules and laws allow counties limited discretion to establish some local policies and procedures. These local policies and procedures, when included in this plan and approved by the Commissioner, are considered county policy and are used to support county agency decisions during appeals.
