How Providers Become Listed with DHS

Information on Becoming “Listed” with DHS
 
DHS pays for child care while its clients are working or are in self-sufficiency activities. IN ORDER TO BE PAID, A PROVIDER MUST BE “LISTED” with DHS. Being listed means the provider agrees to meet safety standards and passes a criminal history check.
 
This sheet provides basic information about the listing process for the ERDC, JOBS, and OFSET programs.
 
In order to become listed, a provider must: complete the listing form provided by the client and return it to DHS, and meet all listing requirements on the back of the listing form.
 
Important note:
Being “listed” with DHS is NOT the same as being “registered,” “licensed,” or “certified” with the Office of Child Care. In order to be paid, providers still have to fill out the DHS listing form and return it to DHS.

 

In order to receive payment from DHS, a provider must:
 
PASS CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS:  Child-care providers and other people who are around the children must pass a criminal background check. These checks identify people who are unsuitable to work with children or have access to children. Offenses that can make a person ineligible for listing include violent crimes, drug and alcohol offenses, and property crimes such as robbery and burglary. Even relatively minor crimes such as theft or driving while intoxicated can also disqualify a provider.
 
PASS CHILD-PROTECTIVE SERVICES CHECKS: DHS Child Protective Services records are also checked. These records will show cases of reported abuse or neglect. A confirmed report of these offenses can disqualify the provider from listing with DHS.
 
MEET FACILITY STANDARDS:  All places where care is given must meet basic health and safety standards. For example, there must be safe drinking water and smoke detectors that work. A complete list of facility requirements is on the back of the listing form.
 
USE PROPER HEALTH PRACTICES:  Providers must take steps to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, and give parents information about immunizations. Your local health department or Child Care Resource and Referral agency can give you more information.
 
REPORT SUSPECTED CHILD ABUSE:  Providers must report suspected child abuse to the local DHS Child Welfare Office or a local law enforcement agency.
 
Important Note:  
DHS only pays for child care you provide while a parent is at work or in DHS self-sufficiency activities, such as JOBS. Do not bill DHS for any other child-care costs.

 
If you have further questions about becoming listed with DHS, please ask your client the name of his or her caseworker, and call that person.
