CW 115 - Child Care Monthly Report - CalWORKs Families

This monthly report includes data on the number of CalWORKs families and children approved/authorized/certified to receive Stage 1 child care during the report month.  The data are broken out by the families' participation in the Welfare-to-Work or Cal-Learn Programs, those who were No Longer on Aid, or those who have timed out of their 60 month eligibility (CalWORKs Safety Net Program). Beginning with the July 2015 report month, the CW 115 report changed its focus to child care received, rather than payments received to more accurately reflect caseload data. 


Beginning March 1, 2020, all existing reports publicly accessible on web pages belonging to the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) must comply with the CDSS Data De-identification Guidelines in order to more fully protect the identities of the vulnerable clients we serve. Cells that could identify an individual with a value of less than 11 have been replaced with a “*” to comply with the CDSS Data De-identification Guidelines .
