The Migrant Childcare Alternative Payment (MCAP) Program provides child care services to migrant agriculturally working families thru six entry counties (Kern, Kings, Madera, Merced, Tulare, and Fresno)- click here for office locations.  Giving choice to parents as to what type of child care, MCAP works thru licensed childcare centers, licensed family childcare homes, license–exempt (TrustLine), license-exempt (Relatives) and in-home providers. Families are admitted in accordance with family income, with the lowest per capita admitted first. Furthermore, to promote the continuity of childcare, a family who migrates throughout the State of California continues to be eligible for services with the MCAP program.
