About the Child Care Payment Program

Each year, a portion of the Child Care and Development Fund provides financial assistance in the form of vouchers for low-income families to afford quality child care services. In Mississippi, these set-aside funds are distributed through the Child Care Payment Program (CCPP). CCPP is administered by the Division for Early Childhood Care and Development (DECCD) at the Mississippi Department of Human Services.

Becoming a CCPP-approved provider opens your business up to families who have a voucher to spend at your center.

COVID-19 Info for CCPP Providers

In response to the pandemic, temporary policies were developed to sustain childcare in Mississippi and to serve a priority population of essential personnel through the issuance of emergency certificates. These policies are specific to COVID-19 and do not amend the Child Care Payment Program Policy Manual. On April 30, 2020 MDHS filed temporary policies with Secretary of State to strengthen emergency operations of the Child Care Payment Program. These policies are effective immediately through the emergency filing process. View a copy of these COVID-19 policies (PDF).
