To participate in CACFP you must be licensed or registered by the State of New York as a Family or Group Family Day Care Home, or be enrolled with the local Department of Social Services to provide legally exempt care. There is NO COST to enroll in the program and you must have at least one child in care.

To begin the enrollment process you should call the Council at 845-473-4141 ext. 220 and a representative will ask you a few simple questions about your program. At that time an initial visit in your home will be scheduled. This visit will help you understand the program and the paperwork involved. Once all the state-mandated paperwork is completed you may begin claiming meals.
