For Providers

Alternative Payment/CalWORKs Programs

Alternative Payment Programs allow parents to choose the child care program and Children’s Resource & Referral of Santa Barbara County will pay the provider on the State's behalf. Alternative Payment Programs are popular because parents can choose care that is close to their work or home, and care that meets their individualized need for flexible scheduling.

CalWORKs Program is designed for parents of young children, who receive cash assistance through Santa Barbara County - Department of Social Services. For more information or to ask how you can be an Alternative Payment Child Care Provider call 805.925.7030.
