Wisconsin Shares - Child Care Subsidy Program 

"Sharing the News" Newsletter

In September 2006, the Child Care Section launched a provider newsletter, an effort to regularly share important subsidy program information directly with providers who care for children who receive assistance from the Wisconsin Shares Subsidy Program.

The newsletters are published quarterly and will be sent with checks or EFT-remittance. The newsletters will also be posted on this page in PDF format. If you wish to receive an email notice about a newsletter posted on this page, please submit your subscription at: http://dcf.wisconsin.gov/childcare/listserv/default.htm. Enter your email address and click on the 'Child Care Provider Updates'.
