Annual Background Screening Fee
Effective July 1, 2017, the annual background screening fee will change from $15.00 to $18.00. This is based on a decision made by the legislature during this year's legislative session.
Next Generation Fingerprints
To be eligible for money from DWS (this includes child care subsidy payments and CCDF grants and awards), all Covered Individuals 18-years-old and older and all 16 and 17-year-old Covered Individuals who are assistant caregivers must have Next Generation fingerprints by September 1, 2017. CCL started doing Next Generation fingerprints on March 23, 2016. So, those required individuals who had fingerprints processed on or after March 23, 2016 do not have to re-submit fingerprints. Individuals not previously required to submit fingerprints and individuals whose fingerprints were processed before March 23, 2016 must re-submit fingerprints and the $37.00 fingerprint processing fee no later than September 1, 2017. You can email Joan Isom at or call her at 801-273-2859 with any questions.
Secure Furniture and TVs
Every 30 minutes tipped furniture or a falling TV sends an injured child to the emergency room. Preventing tip-over accidents is easy, inexpensive, and takes only 5 minutes.
