Form Library

The following forms are posted to assist you in your management and administration of the adult and child food program within your business.

General Administrative and Policy Forms  

Child Enrollment Form

Use this form to enroll all children participating on the Child and Adult Care Food Program with CCNI. Parents must sign and date within the month that participation is to begin. Send to CCNI with claim.

Annually, children must be re-enrolled. This can be done by mail OR renew enrollments online through this website!

Direct Deposit

Read and follow instructions for automatic deposit of food program reimbursements right into the bank! No more driving to the bank for deposits, or losing checks before they get to the bank! This is a life-saver!

Administrative Review Appeal Form 

Provider Notes

Use this form for extra clarification on claims (children schedules, split shift schedules, adding meal services, etc)

License Continuation Form

Use the License Continuation form for licenser to sign and send to CCNI.  This shows that even though a provider's license has expired, the licenser has been out and completed relicensing (new license hasn't yet arrived).

Diet Statement Information

Children may need to deviate from the USDA meal pattern guidelines if they have a food intolerance or allergy.  Providers must serve the substitutions prescribed by the licensed physician if the child has a disability.

Children without disabilities can request deviations from the meal pattern guidelines, but the provider is not required to provide those changes.  In that case, parents are allowed to sign a decline form and the provider won't claim their meals.  If the provider chooses, he/she can serve and claim meals for the child if they follow the diet statement instructions.

However, certain substitutions or alterations can be made and the meal pattern guidelines will still be met. Additionally, a nutritionally equivalent milk substitute can be supplied by the parent or the provider and the provider can still receive reimbursement for the child.  Iron-Fortified Infant Formula may also be provided by the parent if the parent chooses not to use the kind offered by the provider.  Click here for information on diet statements in relation to milk substitutes and formula statement guidance.  Download the list of approved milk substitutes that can be used.

Household Income Information

Provider Household Income Statement & Instructions

This form is used for providers to apply for Tier I rates. If a provider qualifies according to these guidelines, all meals served in the home are at the higher, Tier I level.  It may help qualify a brand new provider for receiving a licensing grant from CCNI to help with costs associated with starting a newly licensed child care home. 

Family Household Income Statement & Instructions

This form will qualify families  with children enrolled in a family child care home so their providers can receive the higher (Tier I) reimbursement rate for meals & snacks their children consume in the child care home.
