Claims and Reimbursement

Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Family Day Care Home (FDCH) sponsors must submit both FDCH provider claims and sponsor administrative claims online via the Cyber-Linked Interactive Child Nutrition System (CLiCS) or by submitting an interface file. Select the CLiCS log-in page to submit and track claims and payments. Key forms for documenting meal counts and submitting CACFP claims for reimbursement within the required 60-day timeframe are provided on this page.
