Established in 1977, the California Alternative Payment Program Association (CAPPA) was created to serve as a voice for a mixed delivery system of public and private community based agencies dedicated to connecting working poor families and their children to early education and development programs. Agencies contract with the California Department of Education (CDE) to distribute federal and state child care and development subsidies (vouchers) for CalWORKs and eligible working poor families. Alternative Payment Programs (APPs) support hundreds of thousands of working families and children by ensuring parental choice of child focused programs meets both parent needs of working and child needs of learning.

CAPPA, the Children's Foundation and Rebuilding Child Care are committed to protecting and supporting working families and children from birth on with child care subsidies and access to California's rich early care and educational opportunities. To provide our earliest learners with the most advantageous outcomes, we must be vigilant in educating legislators that the votes and policies they make today will directly impact the lives of our children for decades to come.
