Family Day Care Homes Program (FDCH)


The Family Day Care Homes (FDCH) Program is a component of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Sponsors enter into an agreement with the State Agency to sponsor FDCH providers.

FDCH Sponsors receive a set administrative reimbursement based on the number or homes they sponsor. FDCH Providers receive meal reimbursements on a tier system that is based on provider income, whether the home is located in a low-income area, or the eligibility of the children enrolled in care. The number of meals and snacks eligible to receive reimbursement per day vary between sponsor type.


The Family Day Care Homes (FDCH) Program is a Federally funded program designed to offer aid to help day care homes provide nutritious meals to children ages 12 and under. All FDCH Sponsoring Organizations must be either government or private nonprofit institutions. Private individuals and for-profit organizations are not eligible to function as sponsors.

To apply to become a FDCH Sponsoring Organization and for help understanding the basic qualification requirements, please contact the FDCH specialists at 801-538-7680.

If you are a provider wishing to participate on the Food Program, please contact one of our FDCH Sponsors.
