License Exempt Programs

Child Care facilities and programs not subject to child care licensing requirements must have a DWS Child Care Approval from the Department of Health, Child Care Licensing (CCL) Program before DWS funding including child care subsidy payments and grants can be authorized.

Information about how to receive an initial DWS License Exempt Facilities and Programs Approval can be found at childcarelicensing.utah.gov. Go to the Child Care Providers tab, click How to Apply, then go to the DWS Approved License Exempt Facilities and Programs section.
