Child Care Subsidy: Fraud Prevention, Detection, and Investigation


WRMA’s early childhood subject matter experts at the National Center on Subsidy Innovation and Accountability (NCSIA) collaborated with the Office of Child Care (OCC) to create this resource.

This PowerPoint presentation was developed for the United Council on Welfare Fraud’s annual training event. The resource includes:

  • An overview of the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) and the importance of program integrity within the states’ child care subsidy program.
  • Information on the use of data analytics and Georgia’s process for prioritizing fraud investigations in their Childcare and Parent Services Program.
  • The common types of child care fraud cases, strategies for preventing and detecting fraud, and tools that can assist states in assessing their fraud risk levels.

This resource lives on OCC’s Early Childhood Training and Technical Assistance System website. Click the button below to see the resource’s posting there.
