Wisconsin Child & Adult Care
Food Program Sponsors Forum

The Wisconsin Sponsors Forum is made up of representatives from each of the six Wisconsin Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors. The Forum was formed in 1993 to support the development of procedures and resources to benefit Wisconsin family child care providers on the CACFP.

The six CACFP sponsors in Wisconsin are 4-C for Children, 4-C Community Coordinated Child Care, Child Care Centers of Marshfield, Horizons Unlimited, Western Dairyland, and Wisconsin Early Childhood Association (WECA). We work with one another and with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction to promote the CACFP and to provide access across the state of Wisconsin.

Reimbursement Rates

 

The two rates for food program reimbursement are Tier I and Tier II.

Tier I day care homes are those that are located in low-income areas, or those in which the provider's household income is low enough to qualify. Tier II homes are those family day care homes which do not meet the location or provider income criteria for a tier I home. The provider in a tier II home may elect to have the sponsoring organization identify income-eligible children, so that meals served to those children who qualify for free and reduced price meals would be reimbursed at the higher tier I rates.
