Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of our FAQs. If you still have questions, please contact us!

IMACA’s CCC program is a California Alternative Payment Program (CAPP). This is a subsidized childcare program granted by California’s Department of Education (CDE).

No, the CCC itself does not rate or recommend any childcare providers. We only provide referrals. It is up to the parent(s)/guardian(s) to make the best fit for their family needs.

However, we are a part of the Childcare Quality System (CQS). The CQS does rate childcare providers in Mono County, which you can find here.

You must be income-eligible and have a qualifying need. This may be:
  • Employed or seeking employment
  • Seeking permanent housing
  • Recipient of child protective services (CPS)
  • Engaged in vocational training/education
  • A child identified as at risk of being abused, neglected, or exploited
  • Incapacitated (condition must prevent the care and supervision of the child)

Enrollment depends on a space becoming available or an increase in funds. Due to this, we cannot say how exactly how long enrollment takes. Please note that it is NOT a first come, first served basis. It is based on your gross monthly income and family size.
