Child Care Referral Agencies

Resource and Referral Agencies (R&Rs) are local agencies that assist parents in finding licensed child care providers and help family license-exempt child care providers with licensing, fingerprinting, and other issues.

Many R&Rs are also Alternative Payment Program (APP) agencies, which means they administer programs that may be able to provide child care subsidies for low-income families.  Services provided may vary from agency to agency.
